MLB's Top 100 players: Arizona Diamondbacks' Corbin Carroll in top 20 of MLB Network list

Just how special was Corbin Carroll's rookie season with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2023?

The DBacks outfielder went from being unranked on the 2023 list of the MLB's Top 100 players put out by the MLB Network to debuting at No. 18 on the 2024 list.

Not too shabby.

Carroll was recognized by MLB Network in the ranking on Tuesday night.

Carroll impressed in his rookie season for the DBacks, being an integral part of the team's run to a surprise World Series appearance.

He hit .285 in the regular season, with 25 home runs, 76s RBIs and a .362 on-base percentage and was named the National League Rookie of the Year for his efforts, while also coming in fifth in MVP voting in the National League. He also was the first rookie to start an All-Star Game since the Yankees' Aaron Judge, and the first rookie in MLB history to steal at least 50 bases and hit at least 25 home runs.

Carroll joins several other Arizona players in the rankings, including pitcher Zac Gallen (No. 31), first baseman Christian Walker (No. 58), second baseman Ketel Marte (No. 65) and catcher Gabriel Moreno (No. 94).

Walker was No. 88 on the list in 2023, while Gallen was No. 31. Marte and Moreno were not ranked last season, like Carroll.

What a difference a year makes in the rankings for Arizona.
