Arizona Diamondbacks Claim Craig Tatum From Houston Astros Off Waivers

Craig Tatum is headed to the Arizona Diamondbacks, and it looks like their roster moves might be nearing an end. Danny Knobler of CBS Sports has more.

For those who don't know much about Tatum, let's find out about more about him. Tatum had a decent time last season moving around the league, hit .245 (17-for-87) with 3 doubles and 7 RBI in 31 games with the Orioles in 2011. Then he also appeared in 21 games with Triple-A Norfolk; Tatum was claimed by the Astros on October 28, 2011 but didn't do much with Houston before being signed with the D-Backs. His performance is definitely an uptick from his career .223 hitting.

The Diamondbacks now have filled up their 40-man roster. Will there be any other moves?
