Roster news

OK, so this is not exactly breaking news here because we’ve all expected it, but Max Scherzer will start the year on the disabled list.

I’ll post a full story on this later this afternoon, but since they don’t need a fifth starter until April 14 they will have him pitch in an extended Spring Training game before activating him for his big-league start.

That could mean there are now four spots open in the bullpen, or it is possible the D-backs could instead carry an extra bat on the bench for the season’s first eight days.
