Blaine Boyer Clears Waivers

THURSDAY, 10:07pm: Steve Gilbert of MLB.com tweets that Boyer has cleared waivers and will be reassigned to Arizona's Triple-A affiliate in Reno tomorrow.

TUESDAY, 10:05am: The Diamondbacks designated reliever Blaine Boyer for assignment to make room for starter Billy Buckner, tweets MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez.  Buckner was recalled from Triple A to make today's start against the Marlins.

Boyer, 28, posted a 7.82 ERA, 4.3 K/9, and 7.8 BB/9 in 12.6 innings for the D'Backs this year.  This marks his third time being designated for assignment.  The Braves did it in April of '09 before sending him to the Cardinals for Brian Barton.  Boyer was designated again in June, at which point Arizona claimed him off waivers.

The Diamondbacks' bullpen shakeup began yesterday, as they released Bob Howry and acquired Saul Rivera.
