The Arizona Diamondbacks designated veteran starting pitcher Zach Davies for assignment on Wednesday.
The 30-year-old right-hander had a $5.5 million mutual option for 2024 that included a $300,000 buyout.
Davies finished 2-5 with a career-high 7.00 ERA in 18 starts this season as opponents batted .295 against him.
He is 60-58 with a 4.36 ERA in 200 games (all starts) with the Milwaukee Brewers (2015-19), San Diego Padres (2020), Chicago Cubs (2021) and Diamondbacks.
Arizona recalled right-hander Justin Martinez from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.
Martinez, 22, made his debut on July 7 and has a 14.63 ERA in nine relief appearances for the Diamondbacks.
