D’Backs Designate Rafael Rodriguez For Assignment

The D'Backs designated right-hander Rafael Rodriguez for assignment to create 40-man roster space for new acquisition Armando Galarraga, the team announced. 

Rodriguez appeared in two games for the D'Backs after they acquired him in last summer's Dan Haren trade. The 26-year-old has a 5.60 ERA with 13 strikeouts and 12 walks in 35 1/3 big league innings since 2009. Rodriguez posted a 4.26 ERA with 5.3 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9 at Triple-A for the D'Backs and Angels last year.

    AZ has a bunch of Arms now – but all about the same level of “Quality”. Hudson and Kennedy are solid. Parker looks like he will be great – but needs time. Than its Enright, Duke, Gallaraga, Heilman, Owings all competing for time.
