Rangers claimed C Konrad Schmidt off waivers from the Diamondbacks.

Schmidt, 28, has made a couple brief appearances with the D'Backs the last few years but has spent most of his time at Triple-A, where he batted .277/.338/.413 with seven homers last season. He seems unlikely to earn an Opening Day roster spot.

Diamondbacks optioned C Konrad Schmidt to Triple-A Reno.

He was hitless in just four at-bats in his short stint with the big club. Miguel Montero (groin) is expected back in the lineup Monday, so the D'Backs no longer need an extra catcher.

The Diamondbacks are expected to recall catcher Konrad Schmidt from Triple-A Reno prior to Tuesday's game.

He'll provide some extra insurance behind the plate while Miguel Montero nurses a groin injury. Schmidt, 27, is hitting .274/.336/.419 with three homers and a .755 OPS in 31 games at the Triple-A level this year. Mike Zagurski will likely be sent down in a corresponding roster move.

Diamondbacks optioned C Konrad Schmidt to Triple-A Reno; reassigned RHPs Micah Owings and Brian Sweeney and OF Wily Mo Pena to minor league camp.

Schmidt went 4-for-14 (.286) with a pair of homers during exhibition action, but he wasn't going to threaten Henry Blanco for his job. Pena actually played pretty well this spring, too, batting .341 (14-for-41) with one double and three RBI. Perhaps they can convince him to stick around at the Triple-A level.
