Diamondbacks Roster Review: Sam Demel

By Scott Allen

As we head into the second half of the season, it is time to take a look at the current roster before all the possible trades and roster moves are made as the Arizona Diamondbacks continue to contend for a possible NL West divisional title. Next Up – Sam Demel.

Demel: 2-2, 1.80

Review: Serviceable.  He really hasn’t swayed me one way or the other as to whether he can help the Dbacks or not.  He’s only been limited to 26 appearances so far thanks to injury.  He has only given up 4 runs in 20 innings, so that is saying something.

Outlook: He stays.  Dbacks need more serviceable guys like Demel in order to stay in contention.  The only way Demel walks out the Dbacks door is if the Dbacks have received at least equal value in return.
