Duplanter will be pitch out of the bullpen for Triple-A Reno, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Duplantier was relegated to the minors Saturday to make room for Taylor Clarke, who was called up from Triple-A Reno to start Saturday. He's been used as a starter in the minors, but due to injuries and a need to fill a bullpen role in the majors, the right-handed Duplantier has never been stretched out as much as the Diamondbacks would like. As such, he'll pitch out of the bullpen for the Aces and the Diamondbacks for the rest of the season.
Duplantier was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Saturday.
He was recalled earlier in the week and pitched two innings of relief in Friday's game, allowing one run on two hits and three walks while striking out two. Taylor Clarke was recalled in a corresponding move.
Duplantier allowed one run on two hits and three walks while striking out two over two innings of relief in Thursday's 7-0 loss to the Giants.
Duplantier was called up from the minors Thursday when the Diamondbacks placed Robbie Ray (back) on the injured list. It's unclear if Duplantier, a starter in the minors, will take Ray's place in the rotation. Ray will miss at least one start, a turn that is due during the three-game set against the Rockies beginning Monday, and Duplantier is a candidate to fill in.
Duplantier was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Thursday.
Robbie Ray (back) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move, though Duplantier will join the bullpen rather than take Ray's place in the rotation, per Zach Buchanan of The Athletic. The 25-year-old righty has made four starts with Reno since returning from a shoulder injury in July, allowing two hits and four walks while striking out six across four scoreless innings his last time out. Duplantier owns a 4.32 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 24:9 K:BB across 25 big-league innings this season.
Duplantier (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.
Duplantier had been on the shelf since June 12 due to right shoulder inflammation but managed to complete his rehab assignment in the Arizona League. He'll pitch in Reno for the time being, though he has tossed 25 innings with the Diamondbacks in 2019 (4.32 ERA).
Duplantier (shoulder) needed 30 pitches to get through one inning of a rehab start in the rookie-level Arizona League on Saturday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
The organization pulled Duplantier after the one inning, not wanting to a put a strain on the right-hander's shoulder. It was the second consecutive rookie-league start in which he did not fare well. Manager Torey Lovullo is not concerned that Duplantier might be dealing with lingering issues in the shoulder but giving up five runs, five hits and three walks over two innings to rookies is not a positive sign.
Duplantier (shoulder) allowed four runs on three hits and three walks while striking out one for the AZL Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Duplantier was placed on the injured list June 12 with inflammation in his right shoulder and recently began throwing bullpen sessions. This was his first game action since suffering the injury.
Manager Torey Lovullo said Duplantier (shoulder) is further along than the manager suggested when he updated reporters last week, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Lovullo said he didn't have the right information last week when he provided an update on the status of Duplantier's shoulder. In fact, the manager said, Duplantier has progressed quickly enough following an MRI on Friday that he threw a bullpen session Monday. Lovullo still doesn't have a timetable for the right-hander's return; however, he admitted he's not starting from scratch when it comes to building up arm strength and that Duplantier is further ahead than what was implied last week.
Duplantier (shoulder) underwent another MRI which produced an encouraging image, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Despite the encouraging image, the Diamondbacks are no closer to setting a timetable for Duplantier, "It went well; it was a productive MRI," manager Torey Lovullo said. "It showed exactly what we wanted it to. But we are still determining what the next steps are at this point." The coaching and training staffs will meet in the coming days to discuss the next steps for the right-hander, who has been playing catch up to 75 feet.
Duplantier (shoulder) will be shut down for six or seven days, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
Duplantier landed on the 10-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation Wednesday. He underwent an MRI on Thursday which revealed a significant enough injury to shut him down for a brief period, though it's not clear exactly what he was diagnosed with.
Duplantier (shoulder) underwent an MRI on Thursday, Richard Morin of the Arizona Republic reports.
Manager Torey Lovullo didn't have the results of the test and has not made a decision on who will start Sunday. Duplantier attempted to pitch through the discomfort during Tuesday's start when he allowed four runs and seven hits in three innings.

The injury perhaps partially explains Duplantier's poor outing Tuesday, when he gave up four runs on seven hits in just three innings against the Phillies. His velocity was down during the appearance, likely due to the shoulder injury. It's not yet clear how much time he's expected to miss, but per Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, Duplantier is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Thursday, after which a timetable for his return will hopefully emerge. Reliever Stefan Crichton was recalled in a corresponding move, but the Diamondbacks have not announced who will take Duplantier's place in the rotation.
Duplantier (1-1) took the loss Tuesday at Philadelphia after surrendering four runs on seven hits over three innings. He struck out one and walked one.
Duplantier gave up all four runs during the second inning, with Scott Kingery delivering the deciding blow with a three-run homer. The 24-year-old was constantly behind in the count Tuesday as he managed to throw a first-pitch strike to only three of the 17 batters he faced. Duplantier has a 4.32 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 24:9 K:BB through 25 innings this season and next lines up to start Sunday at Washington.
Duplantier allowed two runs on three hits and a walk while also recording seven strikeouts across five innings during a no-decision against the Dodgers on Wednesday.
In the third, Duplantier walked the leadoff hitter and then allowed a homer. The Diamondbacks came back to tie the game and eventually win it, but the walk and homer cost Duplantier a shot at his first MLB victory as a starter. In two career MLB starts, he hasn't earned a decision and owns a 4.50 ERA. Overall, he is 1-0 with a 3.27 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 22 innings over seven appearances. Assuming he stays in the rotation, Duplantier lines up to start against the Phillies on Tuesday.
Duplantier didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Mets, giving up three runs on six hits and two walks over five innings while striking out four.
The rookie exited the game after throwing 77 pitches (51 strikes) and was headed for a loss until Arizona struck for three runs in the sixth inning, only for New York to retake the lead in the eighth. Duplantier likely pitched well enough to stick in the rotation for now, setting him up to take his next turn at home Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Duplantier was called up as expected Friday ahead of his scheduled start against the Mets.
Duplantier has thrown 12 innings of relief for the Diamondbacks this season, posting a 2.25 ERA. He may not be quite as stretched out as most starting pitchers, but he did throw a season-high 4.1 innings in his most recent start for Triple-A Reno. Kevin Cron was optioned in a corresponding move.
Duplantier has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for Friday's game against the Mets, Jack Magruder of The Sports Xchange reports.
With Luke Weaver (forearm) likely out for the foreseeable future, the Diamondbacks have elected to promote Duplantier from Triple-A Reno to make his first major-league start. If he manages to turn in a solid outing, he has a good chance to stick in the rotation until Weaver returns to health. The right-hander has made five appearances out of the bullpen this season for Arizona, compiling a 2.25 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with 12 punchouts over 12 frames.
Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo acknowledged that Duplantier is a candidate to fill the rotation spot of Luke Weaver (forearm) on Friday against the Mets, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Duplantier has built up his pitch count to 65 in his most recent start at Triple-A Reno and could give the Diamondbacks 80-to-85 pitches if he were to start Friday. Lovullo also mentioned Matt Koch as an option to start.
Duplantier is one possible option to start Saturday against the Giants, Richard Morin of the Arizona Republic reports.
Manager Torey Lovullo is not yet prepared to name a replacement starter for Zack Godley, who was moved back to the bullpen, but did confirm that slot would fall on Saturday. The manager is considering Duplantier and Taylor Clarke along with a pair of long relievers, T.J. McFarland and Matt Andriese. Duplantier started at Triple-A Reno last Saturday but hasn't been stretched out completely as the Diamondbacks have needed him in the major-league bullpen. "If you're asking me, 'Is (Jon) a candidate?' Then, yes. The pitch count is not a huge concern. We think he could give us 75 pitches if needed," said Lovullo.
Duplantier was optioned to Triple-A Reno following Sunday's game against Atlanta, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports. He allowed three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out three over three innings.
Duplantier tossed three innings in the series finale, so the Diamondbacks will send him back to the minors, likely in exchange for a fresh arm. He also tossed a scoreless frame Friday night and struck out two.
