Draft picks

As the D-backs scouts fan out all over the country checking out players, Arizona’s picks in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft have become clearer.

Thanks to compensation for the free agent departures of Orlando Hudson, Juan Cruz and Brandon LyonAs it stands now, the D-backs will have seven of the first 64 picks: 16, 17, 35, 41, 45, 60 and 64.

That’s an impressive haul and how well the D-backs capitalize on them will be key for the organization going forward.
