2022 Diamondbacks Reviews, #42 Edwin Uceta

DFA’d by the Dodgers at the end of the 2021 season, they quickly plucked Edwin Uceta from waivers and added him to the stable of available pitchers. Despite being primarily a starter throughout his minor league career, the D-backs used him as a long-reliever in 2022 just as the Dodgers did in 2021, with 33 of his appearances coming out of the bullpen.

Replacing Humberto Castellanos on the big-league roster as he was on paternity leave, he made two appearances - a scoreless inning one night and a disaster the next, walking the bases loaded before exiting and allowing two runs.
