Diamondbacks Outright Josh Wilson

WEDNESDAY: Wilson has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Reno, according to the Pacific Coast League's transactions page.

FRIDAY: The Diamondbacks announced that they have designated Josh Wilson for assignment.  Wilson is the latest big league player to find himself in limbo as he is the fifth player to be designated for assignment today.  The move will allow Arizona to promote right-hander Zeke Spruill.

Wilson, 32, has hit just .200/.262/.300 in 65 plate appearances this year for Arizona.  In six big league seasons, Wilson owns a slash line of .225/.278/.317 for the D'Backs, Mariners, Rays, Padres, Nats, Marlins, and Brewers.  He has spent the bulk of his major league time playing shortstop but has also seen a significant amount of games at second and third base.
