Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Moves 10/30

Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Transactions | Inside The Diamonds

Tonight, the Arizona Diamondbacks will host their first World Series game in the last 22 years. The series is tied at 1-1 after the Rangers won game one on a walk-off home run, and then the Diamondbacks won game two, blowing out the Rangers 9-1. Today, they claimed RHP Chris Rodriguez off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels; he sat out the entire 2022 and part of the 2023 season due to shoulder surgery. Rodriguez has a bright future if he can get back to full health, as Baseball America had him as the third-ranked prospect in the Angels system before his injury. 

Chris Rodriguez By The Numbers

Rodriguez is still just 25 years old, and even though he has injury problems as of late, he still has a lot of potential and could provide a boost to the Diamondbacks in the future if he returns to form. This season in the Angels system, he made three appearances, going 0-0 with a 13.50 ERA, a 3.37 WHIP, a 0.0 HR/9, a 10.1 BB/9, and a 6.8 K/9. It’ll take a while for him to shake the rust off. In 2021, when he pitched for the Angels, he made 15 appearances, with two of those being starts going 2-1 with a 3.64 ERA, a 3.14 FIP, a 1.44 WHIP, a 0.0 HR/9, a 4.6 BB/9, and an 8.8 K/9.

Wrap Up

The rookies are leading the Diamondbacks on this run to the World Series, led by Corbin Carroll, the favorite to be the National League Rookie of the Year. Tonight, they will be led by another rookie, Brandon Pfaadt, who will get the ball as Arizona looks to take a 2-1 series lead at home.
