Bronson Arroyo (back) remained sore and stiff after playing catch Monday.
"The longer it goes on, the more he gets pushed back," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "We'll wait and see. It's been slow." The veteran import has been sidelined with a bulging disk for essentially the entirety of Diamondbacks' camp. Arroyo hopes to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, which would aid in his goal of being ready for the start of the regular season. "It's driving me nuts today to tell you the truth," Arroyo said. "Everybody around here is like no hurry, no hurry, but I've got a time clock in my head, and to me, it's like a time bomb going off if I don't get this thing right." Arizona has to be a little miffed, as Arroyo has never missed a regular-season start due to injury.

Peguero is still suffering from tendinitis below his right thumb. Baltimore took a chance on him after Peguero was non-tendered by the Giants in December. They've since added a major impediment to his odds of making the roster in Nelson Cruz.
Phillies outrighted RHP Michael Stutes to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Stutes cleared waivers and will remain with the organization. It isn't a surprise, as the 27-year-old right-hander missed a large part of the 2013 season due to biceps tendinitis. He collected a 4.58 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 9/8 K/BB ratio over just 17 2/3 innings.
