• Free agent catcher Matt Tupman, who finished the season with the Diamondbacks’ Double-A Mobile affiliate, tested positive for the second time for a drug of abuse. The suspension will take effect when he signs with a new organization. Tupman, 30, batted .254/.305/.325 in 126 at-bats with the Bay Bears.
• Diamondbacks minor league righthander Daniel Vasquez tested positive for metabolites of Stanozolol. The 23-year-old Dominican struck out 55 batters in 69 innings, while walking 19, for low Class A South Bend. He finished 4-1, 4.57 over 28 relief appearances (plus one start).
