Diamondbacks Trade RHP Robby Rowland To Pirates

The Arizona Diamondbacks are entering the home stretch of Sprint Training and making the final additions and subtractions to their roster in preparation for Opening Day.

On Saturday, the team announced that they have traded right-handed pitcher Robby Rowland to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Rowland was selected by the D-backs in the third round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft. He hasn't had the best record in two seasons in Arizona's minor-league system, going 6-13 with a 7.01 ERA while walking 38 and striking out 92.

The Diamondbacks also retained the rights to Rule 5 Draft selection Brett Lorin, who is also a right-handed pitcher. Lorin was outrighted to Double-A Mobile by the team. With the moves, the Diamondbacks now have 33 players in camp, which includes 5 non-roster invitees.
