              === Diamondbacks designate Kubel for assignment ===
 
 Phoenix,   AZ  (Sports   Network)  -   The  Arizona   Diamondbacks  designated
 outfielder Jason Kubel for assignment.
 
 Kubel had been signed as a free agent by Arizona from Minnesota in December of
 2011,  but the 31-year-old has struggled to a .220 average, five homers, eight
 doubles and 32 RBI in 89 games this season.
 
 Kubel  was placed  on the  DL on  April 13  with a  strained left  quadriceps,
 which  he  suffered on April  5 against the Brewers,  and missed a little more
 than two weeks of action.
 
 Arizona  also  selected the  contract of pitcher  David Holmberg from Double-A
 Mobile. The 22-year-old left-hander went 5-7 with a 2.66 earned run average in
 25 starts for the Southern League club in 2013.
 
 Holmberg will make his major league debut on Tuesday.
