CF A.J. Pollock was 10-for-25 in his first 11 spring games. "Numbers mean absolutely nothing to me right now," he said. "Just trying to work on stuff. Obviously, results are great. It doesn't translate. If there is something specific you are working on that gets you more comfortable for the season, that is the best thing to do right now."

C Tuffy Gosewisch, battling with veteran Henry Blanco for the backup catcher position, suffered a strained calf in late February but is expected to return in early March. C Bobby Wilson, who spent parts of five seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, and C Blake Lalli became roster candidates in Gosewisch's absence, GM Kevin Towers said. "It's pretty much open for that backup spot," Towers said.

RHP Randall Delgado likely will win a bullpen job if he is squeezed out of the rotation, GM Kevin Towers said. Delgado, who was 5-7 with a 4.26 ERA in 19 starts with Arizona last season, is out of options, and the D-backs do not want to expose him to waivers for fear of losing him. "There is not as much flexibility with him," Towers said. Delgado, who is working to develop a breaking ball to add to his fastball/changeup mix, could be used as a second long reliever to pair with RHP Josh Collmenter.

RHP Archie Bradley, the seventh player taken in the 2011 draft, will get a long look in spring training as a possible addition to the rotation. Most baseball people feel he has to-of-the-rotation stuff and makeup, and that it is only a matter of time before he arrives. He throws in the high-90 mph range and went 14-5 with a 1.84 ERA and 162 strikeouts in 152 innings in 2013, mostly at Double-A Mobile. But Bradley, 21, will not be rushed, and if he needs another few months in the minor leagues, so be it.

However, when pitchers and catchers reported to camp Feb. 6, Arizona still hadn't added to the rotation.
