PHOENIX (AP) — Highly regarded prospect Corbin Carroll made his big league debut with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Aug. 29.

The 22-year-old outfielder hit .303 with 22 doubles, eight triples, 23 homers, 61 RBIs and had 31 stolen bases over 91 games split between Double-A and Triple-A this season.

Carroll has become one of the game’s consensus top prospects since being taken with the No. 16 overall pick by the Diamondbacks in 2019. His promotion continues the D-backs’ push to move prospects — like fellow outfielders Jake McCarthy and Alek Thomas — to the big leagues as they continue their rebuild.

The D-backs sent outfielder Jordan Luplow to Triple-A to make room for Carroll.

Arizona begins a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies. The D-backs are coming off a three-game sweep over the Chicago White Sox over the weekend.
