Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Report 2009-05-14


Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Report 2009-05-14
--SS Stephen Drew returned to the starting lineup Wednesday for the first time since April 24, when he re-injured his left hamstring while making a defensive play behind second base. Drew singled home a run while hitting fourth in the order for the first time in his career as a starter.

--LHP Clay Zavada, promoted on Tuesday as bullpen insurance, was returned to Mobile to make room for RHP Bryan Augenstein on Wednesday.

--SS Josh Wilson was designated for assignment to clear room for OF Gerardo Parra. The D-backs have 10 days to trade, waive or release Wilson, who was signed as a minor league free agent over the winter. Wilson pitched a scoreless inning in Monday's 13-5 loss to Cincinnati.

--OF/1B Conor Jackson was given a battery of tests Wednesday, manager A.J. Hinch said, as the D-backs attempt to discover the cause of the fever and flu-like symptoms that have bothered him for the better part of two weeks. No results were immediately available. Jackson tried to play through it but was seemed to get worse last weekend before being placed on the disabled list Tuesday. He had two hits in his last 24 at-bats, and his average fell to .182.
