The Arizona Diamondbacks recalled left-handed pitcher Tyler Gilbert from Triple-A Reno to be the 29th man for the second game of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Washington Nationals.

Gilbert will get the start for Arizona in Game 2 of the doubleheader.

The team also claimed right-handed pitcher Jacob Webb off of waivers from the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday.

Webb was optioned to the Triple-A Reno Aces after getting claimed by Arizona.

Additionally, the team designated outfielder Stuart Fairchild for assignment.

Gilbert was with the team for the 2021 season, where he threw a no-hitter in his first career start against the San Diego Padres on Aug. 14.

In 40 innings of work last year, Gilbert had a 3.15 ERA with a 2-2 record.

In 78 relief appearances over the last three seasons with the Braves, Webb is 9-4 with a 2.47 ERA to go along with three saves and nine holds. He recorded 71 strikeouts and 31 walks over that span.

The move comes after the D-backs optioned starter-turned-reliever Caleb Smith to Triple-A Reno this past Sunday. Smith saw one start and one relief appearance this season before he was sent down to the minors.

Fairchild was a part of the team’s 2020 trade deadline deal that shipped off Archie Bradley to the Cincinnati Reds. Arizona also acquired Josh VanMeter, who was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier this month, in the deal.

In 12 games played with Arizona last season (17 plate appearances), Fairchild averaged .133 and slugged .200 to go along with two hits, three runs scored and two RBIs. He was walked once and struck out three times.

The D-backs take on the Washington Nationals for Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader at 4:05 p.m. Tune to ESPN 620 AM or 98.7 FM HD-2 for all the action.
