D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said that outfielder Chris Young would be available to pinch-hit on Wednesday against the Padres. Young re-aggravated his right quadriceps in the first inning of Tuesday's game. An MRI taken Wednesday did not show any additional damage. Gibson said he would likely pinch-run for Young if he got on base.
To make room on the 40-man roster for Jacobs, the D-backs designated outfielder Cole Gillespie for assignment.
Double-A Mobile manager Turner Ward will be with the D-backs for the rest of the season, helping out before games. Ward's teams have won the past two Southern League championships.
