Steve Gilbert reports that Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson has named Barry Enright the team’s fifth starter.  Gilbert says that Gibson will “discuss what that means” later today.

Presumably it means that Armando Galarraga is heading to the bullpen or the scrapheap, as he and Enright were competing for the fifth starter’s job.  Given that Galarraga gave up five runs on six hits in five innings against the Tribe in his last start and Enright gave up only two runs in five innings against the Athletics, the writing was more or less on the wall.  Not that last starts had everything to do with it. Galarraga has stunk up the joint this spring.

Oh well, not having to start will give Galarraga more time to work on his book. So there’s that.

    Oh sure, a day after I write my preview of the D-Backs they announce this. Jerks.
