Duplantier (lat) signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Friday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Duplantier has been dealing with a lat strain recently that could prevent him from pitching again this year, and he was released by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. However, he'll return to the organization after he went unclaimed on release waivers.
Duplantier (lat) was released by Arizona on Wednesday, Nick Piecoro of Arizona Republic reports. Duplantier was once considered a top prospect with a promising future in the majors. However, his career to this point has been derailed by both injury and poor performance. He's currently dealing with a lat strain that will likely prevent him from pitching again this season.
Duplantier (finger) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Reno on Saturday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports. Duplantier had been on the injured list since June 14 due to a strained right middle finger, but he began a rehab assignment with the ACL Diamondbacks on Friday. He allowed one run on two hits and no walks while striking out one in one inning, and he'll report to the Triple-A club now that he's healthy.
Duplantier was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Monday, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports. Duplantier was rocked for six runs on six hits over 1.1 innings Sunday against the Angels. He's struggled in four appearances this season, surrendering 19 runs across 12.1 frames. Corbin Martin was recalled in a corresponding move.
Duplantier (0-3) allowed six runs on six hits over 1.1 innings as he took the loss to the Angels on Friday. He did not strike out nor walk a batter in the effort. Duplantier has struggled in all four of his starts this season, but none of them were as bad as the one he had Sunday. The Angels piled on two runs in the first off the bat of Max Stassi and then four more in the second before he was pulled after managing to record just one out. The 26-year-old now owns a 13.15 ERA, 2.08 WHIP and a 12:8 K:BB over 13 innings. Things won't get any easier for him as he's projected to make his next start against the Dodgers if he ends up sticking around in the rotation. Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic noted that manager Torey Lovullo was late to the post-game press conference because coaches were discussing the rotation, which could mean Duplantier's days are numbered.
