Shelley Duncan DH ARI 1 Month
Diamondbacks reassigned OF Shelley Duncan, 1B Mike Jacobs, C Blake Lalli and INF Andy Marte to minor league camp.
While there are some big names in this bunch of cuts, none of the moves are terribly surprising. The 34-year-old Duncan struggled in Cactus League play, hitting just .208 (5-for-24) with no homers and five RBI.

Diamondbacks signed 1B/OF Shelley Duncan to a minor league contract.
The deal seems likely to include an invitation to spring training. Duncan appeared in 20 games last season for the Rays, batting just .182/.297/.309 with two homers. A nice perk for the 34-year-old is that he's now in the same organization as his father, Dave, who signed on as a pitching consultant for the D'Backs earlier this winter.

Shelley Duncan hit his first career grand slam to account for all of the Indians' scoring Friday against the A's.
Duncan was 7-for-20 (.350) with the bases loaded in his career, but his only extra-base hit was a double. If only the Indians would decide to release Duncan tomorrow (and no one else picked him up), he'd finish the season with 11 homers and 29 runs scored for the third straight year. However, it looks like he'll get another 60-80 at-bats to add to those totals.
