The Dominican Summer League Diamondbacks or DSL Diamondbacks, commonly called the DSL D-backs, are a rookie league affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks based in the Dominican Republic.[1] They play in the Baseball City Division of the Dominican Summer League.


The team first came into existence in 1996, two years before the MLB debut of the Arizona Diamondbacks.[2] They have been an independent D-backs affiliate throughout their history, although there have been a few seasons where a second squad shared affiliation with other teams.

In 2000, a second squad shared an affiliation with the Boston Red Sox.[3] In 2003, a second squad shared an affiliation with the Montreal Expos.[4] A second squad shared an affiliation with the Cincinnati Reds in 2008,[5] and again in 2012.[6]
