Pitchers and Catchers

Posted By Josh Robbins On Feb 3 2011 @ 12:20 pm In Arizona Diamondbacks | No Comments

It is almost time to hear those three magic words, pitchers and catchers.  The Arizona Diamondbacks hurlers and backstops will report February 13th to their brand new home Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.

The 2011 Diamondbacks starting rotation features six quality arms for five positions.  Joe Saunders [1], Daniel Hudson [2], Ian Kennedy [3], Barry Enright [4], Zach Duke [5], and Armando Galarraga [6]will compete in Spring Training to become members of the staff.

J.J. Putz [7] will take over the closer role after spending the previous two seasons in the Chicago White Sox pen.  The club also acquired hard-throwing David Hernandez [8] and Kam Mickolio [9] from the Baltimore Orioles as part of the Mark Reynolds trade.

Miguel Montero [10]will be the starting catcher and veteran Henry Blanco [11] signed a one-year contract to fill the role of backup receiver.

The Diamondbacks kickoff their Spring Training schedule on February 26th against the Colorado Rockies.  Each club will share the new facility in Scottsdale.
