Catcher Hank Conger, who is in the Diamondbacks’ camp on a minor-league contract, is dealing with a strained right oblique muscle and will be sidelined for an indefinite period of time, according to manager Torey Lovullo.
“It’s unfortunate for Hank, trying to come in here and make an impression as a non-roster player,” Lovullo said after workouts on Saturday at a soggy Salt River Fields. “Those (injury) things aren’t well-timed, but the first thing we need to do is get him healthy and see where we can evaluate him. But he’s working very hard behind the scenes with our medical team to get it right.”
Conger, who has spent time with the Angels, Astros and Rays, suffered the oblique strain on Thursday. Right-hander Matt Koch, meanwhile, remains day-to-day with a tight hamstring, Lovullo said.
