DENVER (AP) – Arizona reliever Chris Devenski was placed on Wednesday’s restricted list by the Diamondbacks, who did not give a reason. To take his place on the roster, the Diamondbacks selected the contract of right-hander Anthony Swarzak from the team’s alternate training site. The move came about 20 minutes before the first pitch between the Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies.
Devenski earned a save Sunday at San Diego, his first in nearly three years. The 30-year-old signed as a minor league free agent on Jan. 26. Devenski has a 16-16 career mark with a 3.39 ERA spanning 227 games, including seven starts. He spent five seasons with Houston but was limited to four games last season. He had a bone spur removed from his right elbow last September.
He is signed to a contract calling for a $1 million salary while in the major leagues.
