Buschmann was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Monday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Buschmann was designated for assignment last week as the team made room for new addition Edwin Escobar. The 32-year-old made his MLB debut earlier this season after logging more than 1,300 innings in 10 minor league seasons, but he will return to the minors for now.
Buschmann was designated for assignment on Friday. The team needed to make room at the Triple-A level for new addition Edwin Escobar, who was signed on Friday. Buschmann made his MLB debut this season after logging more than 1,300 innings in 10 minor league seasons.
Buschmann was sent down to Triple-A Reno on Sunday. Buschmann was sent down with Jake Barrett. They both threw multiple innings on Saturday, and won't be available for the next few days. Both could be recalled to the Diamondbacks later this season, but for now Buschmann and Barrett will be replaced by the fresh arms of Archie Bradley and Evan Marshall.
Buschmann made his MLB debut in Sunday's loss to the Cubs, giving up a hit and a walk but no runs in one inning of work. The 32-year-old journeyman has logged more than 1,300 innings in 10 minor league seasons, so it's great on a personal level to see him get a shot in the big leagues. He doesn't figure to have a fantasy relevant role, however, and is more of a depth option for the Diamondbacks at this point.
Buschmann had his contract purchased by the Diamondbacks on Friday, Jack Magruder of Fanragsports.com reports. The Diamondbacks bullpen has been a disappointment to start the season, so the club is hoping the addition of a veteran like Buschmann to the mix can help level things out. Buschmann spent all of last season at Triple-A, playing with three different organizations and working a combined 4.08 ERA. He'll be a depth option out of the bullpen but is unlikely to earn a fantasy relevant role.
