The list of drafted players includes Nolan Arenado, David Dahl, Chris Iannetta, Ryan McMahon, Brendan Rodgers, Trevor Story, Chad Bettis, Jon Gray, and Scott Oberg.

On the injured list, in addition to Blackmon, is former first-round pick Tyler Anderson, who faces possible career-ending knee surgery.
