Schugel was 6-4 with a 3.47 ERA in 26 starts for Double-A Mobile last season.
The Diamondbacks optioned pitcher Matt Reynolds, pitcher A.J. Schugel and pitcher Allen Webster to Triple-A Reno. They also reassigned outfielder Nick Buss, infielder Walter Ibarra and pitcher Dan Runzler to minor-league camp Monday.
