Pitcher Joe Paterson was sent to Triple A Reno. Pitcher Marcos Mateo, selected in the Rule 5 Draft, we sent back to the Chicago Cubs’ organization.

The following players were assigned to the D’backs’ Minor League Camp: Catcher Blake Lalli, first baseman Mike Jacobs, infielder Andy Marte and outfielder Shelley Duncan
