D-backs' extras work out in simulated game
PHOENIX -- The D-backs held a simulated game Tuesday afternoon to get some work for players who have not seen regular action lately.

Pitchers Zach Duke, Sam Demel and Mike Zagurski threw to hitters Geoff Blum, Sean Burroughs, John McDonald, Collin Cowgill and Cole Gillespie.

Blum, a switch-hitter whom D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said would definitely be on the postseason roster, got the majority of the at-bats right-handed.

The D-backs will probably send some of the players left off the postseason roster over to their Spring Training complex in nearby Scottsdale to continue to play in case they are needed due to injury in the postseason.

"There's different scenarios," Gibson said. "We'll consider leaving some people back here to continue to play in case someone gets hurt. We'll probably travel some extra guys that aren't on the roster as well. Who that is, I don't know. What pool goes where, I don't know."
