D-backs trim roster as spring winds down
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP)
The Arizona Diamondbacks have optioned right-hander Trevor Bauer to Double-A Mobile and made seven other moves to trim their roster in the closing days of spring training.
Right-hander Charles Brewer and infielder Matt Davidson also were reassigned to Mobile.
Bauer was the third overall pick out of UCLA in last year's draft and was expected to start at Double-A before making his way up to the majors.
The Diamondbacks have 37 players, including seven non-roster invitees, in Major League camp. Arizona opens the season April 6 at home against San Francisco.
