Diamondbacks' Taylor Guilbeau: Reassigned to minor-league camp

Guilbeau was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday. Guilbeau was healthy to begin spring training after missing the end of the 2020 season due to a left shoulder strain. The southpaw made five relief appearances this spring and allowed four hits and three walks while striking out two over 4.2 scoreless innings. Guilbeau should begin the year in the minors. He could join the major-league bullpen at some point in 2021.

Diamondbacks' Taylor Guilbeau: Shakes off shoulder injury

Guilbeau (shoulder) is scheduled to pitch in relief in Monday's Cactus League game against the Brewers, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Guilbeau finished the 2020 season on the shelf due to a left shoulder strain, but he's faced no restrictions this spring while attending camp as a non-roster invitee. The 27-year-old lefty is a longshot to win a spot in the Diamondbacks' Opening Day bullpen.

A Taylor Guilbeau reunion with the Nationals is possible

After being designated for assignment, Taylor Guilbeau may find his way back to the organization who drafted him, the Nationals. The year was 2019 and the Washington Nationals were in desperate need of help in the bullpen. They put together a package of three minor leaguers for the Seattle Mariners, and received Hunter Strickland and Roenis Elias in return. A trade which did not work out for the Nationals as Strickland continued to be plagued by the gopher ball and Elias injured himself while batting, of all things. Neither pitched for the Nationals in 2020, and neither is still with the organization.

Diamondbacks' Taylor Guilbeau: Dropped from 40-man roster

Guilbeau (shoulder) was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Saturday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Guilbeau was claimed off waivers from Seattle in October but won't get to last the full winter on Arizona's roster. His 2.70 ERA in 20 career innings at the highest level could encourage another team to take a chance on him, though that's come with a poor 10:9 K:BB. He also saw his 2020 season cut short due a shoulder strain, which could keep interest suppressed.

Examining possible options for the Mariners at catcher; UPDATED: Joe Odom selected, Taylor Guilbeau optioned

News of catcher Tom Murphy hitting the IL with a fracture in his foot was seemingly soft-pedaled by most of the Seattle media and Jerry Dipoto himself, who categorized Murphy’s metacarpal fracture as “small.” But anyone who has ever dealt with a fractured fifth metacarpal—shoutout to all our ballet dancers out there—knows that even a small bone can cause big problems. In about an hour of highly scientific Web MD research, I saw a lot of timelines for a fractured metacarpal, ranging from “uh-oh” to “oh no,” and while the injury isn’t expected to keep Murphy out for “an extended period”, per Greg Johns, mentally bracing for the worst is in a Mariner fan’s DNA.
