Another batch of roster moves, before Brandon Pfaadt takes the mound in Goodyear.

This afternoon, the Arizona Diamondbacks made 7 roster moves leaving them with 55 players in camp. The players in question are as follows:

Optioned to Triple-A Reno:

  • INF Blaze Alexander
  • OF Jorge Barrosa

Reassigned to Minor League camp:

  • RHP Austin Adams
  • RHP Austin Brice
  • C Juan Centeno
  • LHP Sam Clay
  • RHP Michel Otañez

No real surprises there either, though Alexander was seen by some as potentially a dark-horse for an infield bench spot. He had been quite active this spring, appearing in ten games, though only getting 18 PA over them. He was 4-for-17 with a pair of doubles and four RBI, with a K:BB ratio of 5:0. Alexander is still only 23 though, and there should be further spring trainings in his future as a Diamondback. The winner is likely Geraldo Perdomo, who appears all but inked into a role as Arizona’s backup shortstop for Opening Day.

Not actually a broadcast feed for tonight’s game, as far as I know, but I felt like the roster moves were worth mentioning. This is also a Pfaadt start, and he has looked very good so far, throwing five scoreless inning of two-hit ball, so I’m sure we’ll be following this one with interest on Gameday. We’re at a friend’s birthday party, so Curtis will be reporting on how it all goes down on the West side.
