Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Stefan Crichton has been designated for assignment, per beat writer Nick Piecoro. Outfielder has been recalled from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move. (Nick Piecoro on Twitter)
Crichton operated as the Diamondbacks' closer earlier this year but he had very few save opportunities over the last month and a half. However, he mostly struggled this season with a 6.04 ERA, 1.84 WHIP, and 15:12 K/BB ratio over 22 1/3 innings. He could get picked up by another team in need of bullpen help.
