DENVER (AP) -The Arizona Diamondbacks designated infielder Donnie Sadler for assignment before Thursday's game with the Colorado Rockies.
Sadler, who was brought up from Triple-A Tucson last Friday, was 0-for-1 in his brief stay with the Diamondbacks.
The move became necessary when infielder Jason Smith was claimed off waivers on Wednesday from Toronto. Smith hit .212 and had a triple and four RBIs in 27 games with the Blue Jays.
``Jason is a good fit for us because he can play anywhere in the infield,'' Arizona manager Bob Melvin said. ``We really don't have a shortstop option behind Stephen Drew.''
Smith arrived late Wednesday in Denver and was in the lineup at shortstop Thursday.
