Diamondbacks claimed outfielder Jeff Salazar from the Colorado Rockies and optioned him to Triple-A Tucson.
Another solid pickup for D'Backs GM Josh Byrnes, but he already has too many outfielders than he knows what to do with. Like Alex Romero, who was picked up on waivers from the Twins over the winter, Salazar projects as a solid reserver. He plays a pretty good center field and has a fair amount of on-base ability. Maybe he'll get an opportunity in 2008.
