What was once a question of whether or not he wanted to work on staying in Arizona quickly turned in to a confirmation with the D-backs' moves this off-season. That includes signing the likes of Madison Bumgarner and Kole Calhoun, trading for Starling Marte from the Pirates, and locking in Ketel Marte, as the NL West club hopes to be more than just a Wild Card contender in 2020.
Ahmed made his major league debut with the Diamondbacks in 2014, and his offense finally reached its full potential in 2019, as he hit .259 with 19 home runs and 82 RBIs over 158 games, all of which were career highs. Before his 16 long balls in 2018, he had not reached double figures in that category. The shortstop can now focus on the long term success of the Diamondbacks, who were a decent 85-77 last season. Although, with the Dodgers finishing with 106 wins and only getting better since then, they know they still have a lot of work to do.
