By rule, a player selected in the Rule 5 Draft must spend the following season on the team's 25-man roster or be offered back to the organization he came from for half the $50,000 it cost to select him.

The D-backs and Phillies briefly discussed a trade that would have kept Inciarte with the Phillies, but the two teams could not find a match.

• The D-backs claimed right-hander Will Harris off waivers from the A's, who waived him Saturday after claiming him from the Rockies on Wednesday.

Harris was 1-1 with an 8.15 ERA in 20 appearances with Colorado in 2012. He will be assigned to Triple-A Reno.

"He's always had really good strikeout-to-walk ratios, which we like," D-backs general manager Kevin Towers said. "Trying to create a little more depth at the Triple-A level, especially bullpen depth. Not to knock any of the guys we had in camp, but just giving us some other options if there's an injury up here."
