With Albers' arrival, D-backs option Bergesen

PHOENIX -- Reliever Matt Albers reported to the D-backs on Thursday in Philadelphia, and the club made room for him by optioning reliever Brad Bergesen to Triple-A Reno.

Albers was acquired along with outfielder Scott Podsednik from the Red Sox in exchange for reliever Craig Breslow just prior to the Trade Deadline.

The D-backs assigned Podsednik to Triple-A Reno, but the veteran declined to accept the assignment, so he was given his release.
