Diamondbacks Choose Tyler Gilbert; Drey Jameson Moved To 60-Day IL


The Diamondbacks chosen the contract of left-hander Tyler Gilbert from Triple-A Reno, and optioned outfielder Kyle Lewis to Triple-A within the corresponding 26-man roster transfer.  To make room on the 40-man, Arizona moved right-hander Drey Jameson to the 60-day injured listing.

Gilbert’s final MLB look got here virtually a 12 months in the past, as he tossed 4 innings for the D’Backs on July 26, 2022.  An elbow sprain despatched him to the 60-day IL and subsequently ended his season, and Arizona then designated Gilbert for task through the winter and outrighted him off the 40-man roster.

Greatest identified for his no-hitter towards the Padres in 2021, Gilbert hasn’t been capable of maintain the momentum after that dream begin (actually his first begin within the majors, after three earlier aid appearances).  Whereas posting some good outcomes all through the remainder of his 2021 rookie season, Gilbert had a 5.24 ERA over 34 1/3 innings final 12 months and spent plenty of time within the minors.

The outcomes haven’t been notably good at Triple-A Reno this season, as Gilbert has a 5.67 ERA over 54 innings, although his 27.3% strikeout price and eight% stroll price trace that he’s getting somewhat unfortunate within the hitter-friendly atmosphere of the Pacific Coast League.  Gilbert additionally has a .343 BABIP and eight homers allowed over his 54 frames of labor.

It looks like the D’Backs will use Gilbert within the lengthy aid function left vacant when Jameson was injured, and the moderately fast transfer to the 60-day IL is one thing of an ominous signal for Jameson’s well being.  The Diamondbacks solely positioned Jameson on the 15-day IL yesterday as a consequence of elbow irritation, and he was set to endure an MRI to find out the extent of the damage.  Outcomes of that MRI haven’t but been revealed, and even when Jameson has averted a significant damage, the D’Backs may simply be displaying warning with any elbow-related difficulty.

Jameson made three begins in a fill-in capability for Zach Davies earlier this season, however has pitched out of the bullpen over his different 12 outings.  Whereas the superior metrics aren’t wild about Jameson’s modest 21.3% strikeout price or 10.3% stroll price, the bottom-line outcomes have been there, with a 3.32 ERA over 40 2/3 complete innings.  Since he’ll now be out till a minimum of the primary week of September, the pitching-needy Diamondbacks might want to discover one other approach to make up these innings — the membership was already anticipated to be starters and relievers heading into the commerce deadline.
