SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – After a long offseason for the Arizona Diamondbacks, they will return to the field taking on Grand Canyon University on Wednesday.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Three players to look out for are Anthony Banda, Brandon Drury and Yosmany Tomas.

Banda will receive the start on Wednesday. According to the Diamondbacks he made a good impression when he was called up from the minors last season. This would be Banda’s first time with a major league team in spring training.

Last season Drury batted .282 with 16 home runs and 53 RBI’s. He also appeared in 134 games for the Diamondbacks and only made two errors in the field. Look for Drury to make significant impact on the field and at the plate.

Tomas brings a much needed bat to the plate for the Diamondbacks as last season he hit .272 for 31 home runs and 83 RBI’s. Like Drury, Tomas started most of the season in the outfield as he played in 137 games and started 131 of them.

Th Diamondbacks will have a potential of three different catchers in the line-up this year with Chris Ianetta, Jeff Mathis and Chris Herrman. All three will be on the look out as spring training goes on.
