Diamondbacks claim Nate Adcock off waivers from Royals

After being designated for assignment by the Royals last week, righty Nate Adcock has found a new home with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Arizona Diamondbacks announced that they have claimed right-handed pitcher Nate Adcock off waivers from the Kansas City Royals. Adcock, 25, was designated for assignment last Thursday and was optioned to Triple-A Reno.

A fifth round pick of the Mariners in the 2006 draft, Adcock was one of four Mariners prospects traded to the Pirates for Jack Wilson and Ian Snell at the trade deadline in 2009. He spent the rest of that season at High-A Bradenton before the Royals nabbed him in the Rule 5 draft in December, and started the 2011 season in the major leagues after never previously seeing action above High-A ball.

In 24 games (3 starts) with the Royals in 2011, Adcock went 1-1 with a 4.62 ERA. He bounced between Kansas City and Omaha in 2012, and tallied a 0-3 record and 2.34 ERA in twelve appearances with the big league club on the season. For his major league career, Adcock is 1-4 with a 3.79 ERA and 1.463 ERA in 95 innings of work.

With Omaha in 2013, Adcock has struggled, posting a 3-4 record and concerning 7.09 ERA in ten appearances (nine starts). He will head to a very hitter-friendly ballpark in Reno hopeful of being able to get back to the majors with the Diamondbacks.
