The Arizona Diamondbacks continue to make minor adjustments to their roster leading up to pitchers and catchers reporting three weeks from today. As rumored, the Diamondbacks completed a trade with the Detroit Tigers that brought starting pitcher Armando Galarraga to the desert in exchange for two minor leaguers.
The deal, which was completed just before 2 PM local time, added another right-hander to the Diamondbacks pitching staff that will compete for a spot in the starting rotation. Before the deal the rotation looked to be LHP Joe Saunders, RHP Ian Kennedy, RHP Daniel Hudson, LHP Zach Duke, and RHP Barry Enright. RHP Aaron Heilman was signed last week and promised an opportunity to compete for a rotation spot.
