      Diamondbacks' Brian Matusz: Redirected to minors

      Brian Matusz was reassigned to minor league camp Friday.Matusz endured a tumultuous 2016 that featured a back injury and poor performances upon his return. Of course, the left-hander has performed well as a late-inning reliever for the Orioles in the past, so if he can revisit that success, Arizona could give him another crack at a big-league role in 2017.

      Diamondbacks' Brian Matusz: Signs minor-league contract with Arizona

      Brian Matusz signed a minor-league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.After three years of quality work in a setup role for the Orioles, the bottom fell out for Matusz in 2016. The 30-year-old opened last season on the DL while nursing a back injury and didn't look the same upon returning, serving up 14 runs over a combined nine innings at the big-league level with the Orioles and Cubs. Assuming he enters spring training in better health, Matusz could return to form and claim a 40-man roster spot for the Diamondbacks, who boast one of the majors' weaker bullpens.
