Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Moves: Pat Corbin, Tyler Skaggs To AA, No Change To Starting Rotation, Saito Hurt

In his postgame press conference after the game on Tuesday, Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson spoke about some of the final roster moves the team needs to make by tomorrow afternoon. Despite hinting at the possibility of change on Monday, Gibson said that there will be no changes to the starting rotation. From one to five, it will be as he stated earlier in the spring -- Ian Kennedy, Daniel Hudson, Josh Collmenter, Trevor Cahill and Joe Saunders.

As a result, the team reassigned pitchers Patrick Corbin and Tyler Skaggs to AA Mobile. Corbin had thrown an impressive spring and there was speculation that he might make the starting rotation over Collmenter.

While the starting rotation is set, there is some uncertainty still with the bullpen. Right-handed reliever Takashi Saito "tweaked a calf" when he was beginning his warmups and is set to have an MRI on Wednesday. Team doctors said that it does not appear to be anything serious, but they will check before they make any roster decisions.

Gibson also said that position players Cody Ransom and A.J. Pollock would be sent to AAA Reno tomorrow.

The team expects to know what the final roster will look like by late Wednesday morning.
