The Arizona Diamondbacks are primed to make a run at the defending MLB champion San Francisco Giants and the free-spending Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West. 2012 was a letdown, but 2013 is going to be a major rebound year.

At 81-81, the Diamondbacks fell well short of expectations in 2012. They aren’t expected to win the National League West in 2013, but they are expected to be in the race.

They’re deep at starting pitcher, with more help in Daniel Hudson on the way later in the year. They’ve got a deep bullpen with multiple closer options, so they can sustain injuries and continue on. 

The offense was No. 6 in the National League in home runs and batting average in 2012, which they would certainly take again in 2013. Let’s take a look at who’s going to breakout and lead the Diamondbacks back to the playoffs.
