Arizona options LHP Paterson, OF Campana to Reno
PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks have optioned left-hander Joe Paterson and outfielder Tony Campana to Triple-A Reno.
The move with Paterson on Friday night means that Tony Sipp and Matt Reynolds will be the team's left-handers out of the bullpen.
Campana was acquired from the Chicago Cubs in the offseason.
The team also reassigned right-hander Nelson Figueroa, who starred for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic, to its minor league camp. Catcher Tuffy Gosewisch also was reassigned to minor league camp.
