The Arizona Diamondbacks have released recently acquired Scott Podsednik after the veteran outfielder refused his assignment to Class Triple-A Reno, the team has announced (via Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic). The D'Backs acquired the 36-year-old Podsednik from the Boston Red Sox as part of the Craig Breslow & Matt Albers trade deadline reliever swap.

After not playing in a single big league game in 2011, the once speedy outfielder filled in well for the Red Sox before ultimately going down with a groin injury himself. Now a free-agent, Podsednik will be looking for a minor league deal with the hopes of making it to the big league level.

He sported a triple slash line of .387/.409/.484 while swiping 7 bags and knocking one out of the park, but it was in just 70 plate appearances over 19 games.
