More Roster Moves…
Things are really starting to take shape roster wise down at Spring Training. The Dbacks sent eight players to minor league camp Friday, leaving 37 at Major League Camp, including seven non-roster players.
Slugger Matt Davidson was reassigned to Double-A Mobile. He hit 20 home runs for Visalia last season and 16 in 2010 with South Bend. The good news for Davidson is that Bobby Borchering is moving to the outfield, providing less competition for Davidson at 3B.
Right-hander Charles Brewer was also reassigned to Mobile… he made 13 starts for the Silver Hawks in 2010 and posted a 1.83 ERA.
Pitcher Barry Enright, who’s made 24 career big league starts, was optioned to Triple-A Reno.
Super prospect Trevor Bauer, who leap-frogged South Bend, was optioned to Mobile. He had a decent spring, but will have to wait his turn. Heck, the Nationals recently optioned super, super prospect Bryce Harper to Triple-A. I think we can safely assume both will crack the big leagues in due time barring injury or any other extenuating circumstances. Here is more on the Bauer move.
I’ve had tons of fun putting together the Silver Hawks Media Guide and learning about the Diamondbacks organization… just waiting on the roster to be announced! I will probably post portions of the guide on this blog, and may even look into posting the whole thing online for those that are interested.
