We have played ten games in spring, but have yet to see both Bumgarner and likely Opening Day starter for the Diamondbacks, Zac Gallen (he’s scheduled for Tuesday’s game). It's an interesting strategy: I presume Torey Lovullo and crew know what they're doing, and have a specific plan. Also making their first appearance of spring is Kyle Lewis, who has been sidelined by leg issues. Given the problems he has had in the past with health, it's important for him to show he's at 100% - at least, for the DH-heavy role to which he is likely best suited.

The team also made its first batch of roster moves this morning. The following five players were reassigned to minor-league camp:

  • RHP Slade Cecconi
  • INF Deyvison De Los Santos
  • RHP Bryce Jarvis
  • INF Jordan Lawlar
  • LHP Blake Walston

No great surprises there. These are mostly players here to get a little bit of experience, rather than those who had a legitimate shot at the major-league roster. There are still 62 players in camp, so many more cuts come between now and Opening.
