Matt Davidson and Tuffy Gosewisch are back with the Reno Aces.
Davidson and Gosewisch were optioned back to the Aces on Monday after spending the better part of this month in Arizona. Davidson, a third baseman, went 5-for-28 (.179) with the Diamondbacks while Gosewisch, a catcher, was 5-for-27 (.185).
Davidson is hitting .278 this season with the Aces with 16 homers and 68 RBI. Gosewisch is hitting .285 with the Aces with six homers and 30 RBI. Both players were selected for the Pacific Coast League All Star Game in July.
Gosewisch made major league history last week when he became the first player to strike out against two different position players in the same inning. Gosewisch fanned against outfielder Casper Wells and infielder John McDonald in the 18th inning in the Diamondbacks' 12-7 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Diamondbacks also sent veteran utility player Willie Bloomquist to Reno on a rehab assignment. The 35-year-old Bloomquist was 7-for-15 (.467) with a triple and eight RBI earlier this season on another rehab assignment with the Aces.
Bloomquist, like Gosewisch, is a former Arizona State Sun Devils player.
The Diamondbacks activated catcher Miguel Montero and third baseman Eric Chavez off the disabled list on Monday. Davidson was brought to Arizona on Aug. 11 when Chavez was hurt and Gosewisch was sent to Arizona on Aug. 1 when Montero got hurt.
The Aces, now 54-82 this year, have just eight games remaining this season, all on the road at Tucson (Monday through Thursday) and Salt Lake City (Aug. 30 - Sept. 2).
