D-backs send Barrett, Stites to Minor League camp, option De La Rosa, Marte to Triple-A Reno

The Arizona Diamondbacks made a series of roster moves Sunday, sending nine players to their Minor League camp and optioning four others to Triple-A Reno.

Among the notable players sent to the Minor League camp were relievers Jake Barrett and Matt Stites, as well as infielder Nick Ahmed and veteran catcher Bobby Wilson.

This spring, Barrett, a Mesa, Ariz. native, gave up two runs on seven hits over four innings of work. He recorded a 4.50 ERA and one save.

Stites, who was acquired in the deadline deal that sent Ian Kennedy to the San Diego Padres in July 2013, made three appearances and gave up two runs on two hits in 2 2/3 innings of work.

As for the four assigned to Triple-A, left-hander reliever Eury De La Rosa and outfielder Alfredo Marte headlined the list.

De La Rosa, who pitched in 19 regular season games in 2013, gave up two runs and struck out four in 3 2/3 innings of work this spring.

While Marte, who appeared in eight games with Arizona last April, hit .455 with one home run and three RBI in eight spring appearances.
