But another Diamondbacks star whose name came up in discussions was outfielder Corbin Carroll. But it was not because of his play. Carroll was on the bench for the game and was only a defensive substitute in the ninth inning. The reason his name was brought up is that an NBA superstar attended the game wearing a Diamondbacks jersey with Carroll’s name on it.
