The official Arizona Diamondbacks twitter announced a couple of roster changes Saturday afternoon, calling right handed pitcher Jonathan Albaladejo up to replace the right handed Daniel Hudson, who they put on the 15 day DL retroactive to April 16. Hudson last pitched on Wednesday, April 18, going 7.2 innings in a losing effort versus the Pittsburgh Pirates. He's had a rough season so far, going 1-2 in three games and posting a 6.00 ERA (12 earned runs in 18 innings pitched). He goes on the DL with a right shoulder impingement.
Albaladejo has been playing for the Triple-A affiliate Reno Aces, earning a 2.35 ERA over 7.2 innings of relief. Opponents were batting .087 against him, failing to score a run in his last three outings. He is likely a temporary placeholder, depending on how the Diamondbacks pitching roster shakes out. Takashi Saito is due to return from the disabled list shortly, and Trevor Bauer may be ready to start throwing for the team. With Arizona having lost four in a row and standing at 7-7, they'll need somebody to pitch in if they want to turn things around.
