C Tuffy Gosewisch won the backup catcher position over non-roster invitee Henry Blanco. Gosewisch, 31, spent 7-plus years in the minor leagues before making his major league debut with the D-backs on Aug. 1, 2103. "I don't know if I can express how happy I am," Gosewisch said. "I felt I was always ready to accept this role. I felt this spring was my first opportunity to win this job, realistically. I always stayed ready. I always thought I could play at this level. I feel I've definitely earned it."
