Arizona Diamondbacks Designate 2 Pitchers for Assignment

The Arizona Diamondbacks have designated Humberto Castellanos and Tyler Zuber for assignment. 

Castellanos appeared in 11 games this past season with the Diamondbacks, where he had a 3-2 record but also a high 5.68 ERA. His struggles on the mound are likely what led to this DFA, so now he has the chance to be claimed by another team on the waiver wire from here. 

Zuber, on the other hand, did not make a single appearance for the Diamondbacks this season. However, over the two previous campaigns, he pitched in 54 games with the Kansas City Royals, where he had a 1-5 record and 5.29 ERA. Teams in need of some pitching depth could decide to take a chance on him, but we will have to wait and see what happens on that front.
