Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Report 2009-05-01


Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Report 2009-05-01
SS Josh Wilson was purchased from Class AAA Reno on Sunday to replace SS Stephen Drew (hamstring) on the 25-man roster. Drew was placed on the disabled list Sunday, retroactive to Saturday.

RHP Esmerling Vasquez was recalled from Class AAA Reno on Sunday to replace LHP Doug Slaten in the bullpen.

PLAYER NEWS:

--RHP Max Scherzer had nothing to show for arguably the best start of his young career Thursday. He struck out seven in six shutout innings before the bullpen failed to hold a 1-0 lead. It was his 11th career start, and the first time he had not allowed a run. He tied his career record for longest outing, done three times last year.

--SS Augie Ojeda sat out Thursday's game due to a minor groin injury. INF Josh Wilson got his first start of the season and went 1-for-3.

--RHP Tom Gordon permitted four of the five runners he faced to reach base Thursday while taking a loss in his second outing since returning from the disabled list Monday. Gordon gave up two singles and two walks and threw only seven strikes among his 19 pitches in the seventh inning, and he was replaced after getting only one out. He had a 1-2-3 outing Tuesday, his first major league appearance since July 6 with Philadelphia.

--RHP Dan Haren (2-3, 1.54) has the third-best ERA in an April in D-backs history. Haren made quality starts in all five of his appearances and leads the major leagues in batting average against, .171. But the D-backs scored only eight runs while he was on the mound. "I've always prided myself on my consistency. Hopefully I can go out and be consistent the rest of the way," Haren said. LHP Randy Johnson had a 0.91 ERA in April 2000 and a 1.37 ERA in April 2002.

--2B Felipe Lopez, the only D-backs regular hitting over .270, hit his second leadoff homer of the season. He homered to lead off the season on April 6.

MEDICAL WATCH:

SS Augie Ojeda (groin) sat out the April 30 game. He is day-to-day.

SS Stephen Drew (left hamstring strain) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 25.

RHP Brandon Webb (right shoulder bursitis) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 7. He threw a bullpen session April 21 but missed a session April 24 and was shut down. Webb is likely out until June.
