Spring Training 2012: Arizona Diamondbacks Make Roster Moves

As Cactus League play continues throughout the Phoenix area, the Arizona Diamondbacks made 12 roster moves to pare their major league spring training roster to 45 players.

Five players were optioned to Triple-A Reno. They were right-handed pitchers Jonathan Albaladejo and Joe Martinez, left-handed pitcher Zach Kroenke, outfielder Cole Gillespie and catcher Konrad Schmidt.

Three players were also sent to Reno via reassignment. They were right-handed pitcher Mike DeMark, left-handed pitcher Jason Lane and infielder Ryan Wheeler.

Right-handed pitchers Evan Marshall and Kevin Munson and outfielder Marc Krauss were reassigned to Double-A Mobile, and infielder Chris Owings was reassigned to Single-A Visalia.

11 non-roster players still remain among the 45 players left.

More moves will be coming in the couple of weeks left in the spring before Opening Day. The way the roster is set, it will likely be more about what minor league teams players will go to, but there might be a surprise or two.
