Tuffy Gosewisch is front-runner to be D-Backs' starting catcher
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart confirmed once again to MLB.com on Thursday that the team's search for a catcher is over. The team will head to camp with Tuffy Gosewisch as the starter, Rule 5 pick Oscar Hernandez as the backup and prospect Pete O'Brien on the cusp of making the major-league roster.

"We sat back and thought about it and talked to our guys internally, our coaching staff, and we're not going do to anything," Stewart said. "Tuffy Gosewisch has never had the opportunity to be a front-line guy, but we do know he's capable of handling the [pitching] staff. If we get some offense from him, it would be great.

"The kid Hernandez we know, through our scouting reports, is a good catch-and-throw guy. And we're not expecting any offense from him. So if we get it, that would be great. But even more importantly, we think that Peter O'Brien is going to be ready. Our coaching staff says he has a chance to break with us from spring training. And if not spring training, we expect to see him by May or June."

D-Backs won't add catcher due to prospect O'Brien's development
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Tuesday the team will not add a catcher to the roster in large part due to the development of prospect Pete O'Brien, according to The Arizona Republic.

"I've decided that I'm not going to pursue another catcher," Stewart said. "I talked with my people and my coaching staff. They believe that O'Brien is going to be around sooner than later. If that does happen, there's no need to go out and get another guy.

"We would have had to trade somebody we didn't want to trade to make it happen. We're going to be patient and allow the progression of O'Brien to take place and stand pat on that."

Tuffy Gosewisch is the only catcher on the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster with major-league experience. Rule 5 selection Oscar Hernandez, who spent last season with the Rays' low Class-A affiliate, will also be in camp competing for a roster spot.

The Diamondbacks acquired O'Brien in a trade with the Yankees in July. The 24-year-old O'Brien hit a career-best 34 home runs in 2014. He has a .267/.319/.534/.853 slash line over three minor-league seasons.

Diamondbacks have had trouble dealing for a catcher
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Diamondbacks haven't been happy with the cost of acquiring a catcher in a trade, according to the Arizona Republic.

We've not made a whole lot of headway in that area yet," general manager Dave Stewart said. "Without really giving up something that's going to cost us a player that we don't want to give away." Arizona dealt starter Miguel Montero to the Cubs in December, and the team is set to open the season with the unproven Tuffy Gosewisch behind the dish.

The club has been in contact with the Cubs regarding Welington Castillo, but nothing has materialized yet. Stewart said rival clubs are asking for Arizona's "top guys" in exchange for a catcher.

Tuffy Gosewisch's first hit is a home run
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks backup catcher Tuffy Gosewisch finally connected for his first hit of the season Tuesday against the Cubs.

Gosewisch's only hit happened to be his first home run of the season. Though, it didn't make much of an impact in a 9-2 loss. Gosewisch connected for a solo home run off Jason Hammel in the sixth inning Tuesday.

Tuffy Gosewisch beats out Henry Blanco for backup catching duties
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks catcher Tuffy Gosewisch beat out veteran Henry Blanco for the team's backup catching duties, MLB.com reports.

Gosewisch slashed .316/.316/.579 with one home run and four RBI in 19 Cactus League at-bats. Blanco will use the next 24 hours to search for a big-league job. If he's unable to find a team to play for, he'll likely become Arizona's seventh coach.
