Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Cuts: Takashi Saito To DL, Wade Miley Named Long Reliever

The Arizona Diamondbacks didn't have as many tough choices as some of their MLB counterparts before opening day, but still made some significant moves on Wednesday, especially to their pitching staff with the news that Takashi Saito will be placed on the DL, while RHP Mike Zagurski has cleared waivers and will be outrighted to triple-A Reno

Per Nick Piecoro on Twitter:

Luckily the D-backs won't be long without Saito, who hopefully can keep from having any setbacks with his strained right calf. As for Zagurski his 2.61 ERA in 10 spring appearances wasn't enough to warrant a roster spot, but could see time later this season. Miley had himself a decent spring with a 1-1 record a 5.59 ERA, helping shore up the bullpen.
