Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb, Tuffy Gosewisch out of lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb and catcher Tuffy Gosewisch are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Lamb batted second Saturday for the first time this season but is out of the lineup Sunday for just the second time in his last eight games. Gosewisch started eight of the last nine games behind the plate. With both players on the bench, the Diamondbacks will bat third baseman Aaron Hill fifth and catcher Jordan Pacheco sixth.

The Diamondbacks are underdogs (+125) in San Francisco Sunday.

Diamondbacks C Gerald Laird scratched Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks catcher Gerald Laird was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Dodgers and replaced by Tuffy Gosewisch.

Laird was the preferred option to work behind the plate with rookie Archie Bradley slated to make his major-league debut, but he is been dealing with back tightness, the team announced. If the team thinks he'll need more than a few days to recover after re-evaluating him Saturday, he could be placed on the disabled list, the Arizona Republic reports.

The Diamondbacks are heavy underdogs (+185) against the Dodgers Saturday.

Blake Lalli battling for backup catcher spot with Diamondbacks
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Diamondbacks aren't sure if they're keeping two catchers or three, and the only certainty is that Tuffy Gosewisch is starting.

Entering the final week of spring training, Blake Lalli is battling Gerald Laird and Jordan Pacheco for a roster spot. 

"You just keep playing and try not to look into things, because it's impossible," Lalli said per MLB.com's Steve Gilbert. "I feel like if you do your job on the field, that's all you can do for sure. I know it sounds cliche, but it's true. I try not to pay attention to decisions that aren't mine. ... You can look around and see and kind of figure you're in it."

D-Backs name Tuffy Gosewisch as starting catcher
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

The Diamondbacks announced Monday that longtime minor leaguer Tuffy Gosewisch will be their starting catcher on Opening Day, according to AZCentral.com

Drafted in 2005, Gosewisch has spent virtually his entire pro career in the minor leagues, playing in 14 MLB games in 2013 and 43 in 2014.

"I don't know which other way we would go," Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said.

In his 55 career games for the Diamondbacks, Gosewich has hit .213 with one home run and 10 RBI in 174 at-bats.

Hale: Gosewisch, Laird leading D-Backs catcher competition
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale spoke about the team's catcher competition Thursday, proclaiming Tuffy Gosewisch and Gerald Laird as the current leaders, MLB.com reports.

"Tuffy, to me, is running with it, and so is Gerald," Hale said. "I would say they're the two guys that are leading the pack. We haven't decided anything yet."

One of the reasons Laird signed with the Diamondbacks was a legitimate chance to win a roster spot, and he's established himself as a viable option for the team.

"He has just come in and done everything we've asked," Hale said. "What's impressed me is his catching. He's done a good job handling our staff, and he's had some really good at-bats. He looks fresh."

Blake Lalli or Jordan Pacheco may also be able to stick on the roster as well as a third catcher, due to their ability to play other positions.
