News: Laird (back) was activated from the 60-day DL and designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Thursday.
Impact: With Laird's rehab window up and the Diamondbacks not needing another backstop on the roster, the team just went and effectively cut the 35-year-old loose, though there's an outside chance he could accept an outright assignment to the minors. Laird went 8-for-26 with a double and four RBI during his rehab stint after missing the first four months of the season with a back injury.
