Miguel Montero to DL, Tuffy Gosewisch Recalled from Reno

Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sport

Miguel Montero has been placed on the DL, and relief pitcher Chaz Roe was optioned to Triple A.

The expected move today was relief pitcher Chaz Roe returning to Reno to make room for Zeke Spruill. Roe, up for extra help in the bullpen this week, pitched one inning and allowed one run in Tuesday's loss to Tampa Bay.

It was announced yesterday, after the trade of Ian Kennedy, that Spruill would make make this start in Texas. Spruill has not allowed an earned run since June 3rd, a string of five starts and 31 2/3 innings, including a complete game shutout. Spruill made four relief appearances with the Diamondbacks in June (4.1 IP, 1 ER), but this will be his first major league start.

In somewhat unexpected news, catcher Miguel Montero was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain, retroactive to July 29th. Catcher Tuffy Gosewisch was selected from Triple-A Reno. Gosewisch, an Arizona State alumnus, was originally drafted in 2005 by the Philadelphia Phillies. He signed a minor league contract with the Diamondbacks in early January and spent most of spring training with the big league club. He is currently hitting .285 / .321 / .456 / .777 in 66 games with Reno. Gosewisch will make his major league debut tonight, batting eighth and catching teammate Spruill.
