A Definitive Ranking of the Diamondbacks' Grittiest Players

by Zachary Levine

In light of Kevin Towers’ desire for a grittier team after trading Justin Upton, here’s the Diamondbacks projected roster ranked by grittiness. These are correct, so don’t bother leaving comments.

  1. Eric Hinske
  2. Cody Ross
  3. Martin Prado
  4. John McDonald
  5. Aaron Hill
  6. Cliff Pennington
  7. Gerardo Parra
  8. Eric Chavez
  9. Jason Kubel
  10. Wil Nieves
  11. Paul Goldschmidt
  12. Miguel Montero
  13. Adam Eaton

That’s all. Pitchers can’t be gritty. They can only be gamers.
