The Diamondbacks plan to ease Jarrod Saltalamacchia into everyday catcher duties.

They need him to serve as their regular catcher following Tuffy Gosewisch's (knee) season-ending injury, but Salty isn't completely familiar with the pitching staff yet. He'll share time behind the dish with Jordan Pacheco for now. "It'll almost be a day-on, day-off thing until we really feel like his legs are underneath them," manager Chip Hale said. Despite him being eased into starting duties, Salty's power makes him a worthy second catcher in mixed leagues.

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Monday that a decision has not been made as to whether prospect Peter O'Brien has given up catching and become a full-time outfielder.

The Triple-A Reno Aces' official Twitter account tweeted Sunday that O'Brien had "made the decision" to give up catching and it was later confirmed by the D'Backs. The tweet has since been deleted and now Stewart is saying nothing is final yet. "We're never going to let a player dictate to us what he wants to do," Stewart said. "We'll sit down and, as a group, discuss and talk about what we should be doing and what the best direction is for a player." O'Brien's throwing from the catcher position has returned to normal after he had the yips in spring training. Still, it sure seems like his future is in the outfield even if the decision isn't official yet. He's batting .339/.377/.634 with 12 homers and 47 RBI over 49 games for Reno this season.

Rafael Betancourt yielded a go-ahead grand slam in the ninth inning Tuesday versus the Dodgers in his return to action.

Betancourt hadn't been available for a few days due to a sinus infection but appeared in both ends of Tuesday's doubleheader. He retired the only batter he faced in the first game but allowed four hits -- including Alex Guerrero's grand slam -- as he tried to close out the second game with John Axford unavailable.

Andrew Miller allowed a run in the 11th inning, but still got his 16th save as the Yankees won 5-3 over the Mariners on Tuesday.

Miller allowed a one-out single to Welington Castillo, then hit Austin Jackson with a pitch. After getting Brad Miller to pop up, Miller served up an RBI single to Robinson Cano, putting the tying run on base. The lefty bounced back and struck out Nelson Cruz to end the ballgame. It's only the second time this season Miller has been scored upon. He's 16-for-16 in save chances with a 1.16 ERA and a 37/9 K/BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings.

Mike Montgomery, making his major league debut, held the Yankees to one run in six innings, leaving with a no-decision as the Mariners lost in 11 innings on Tuesday.

Montgomery looked solid, limiting the Yankees to four hits and two walks while striking out four. The only run came across in the third inning on a Mark Teixeira double. The Mariners may let him start again. If they do, Montgomery would be on track to take on the Rays at home on Sunday.
