Zuber was placed on the 60-day injured list (right shoulder impingement syndrome) on March 16.
The 40-man roster remains at 40.

In two seasons with the Royals, Zuber is 1-5 with a 5.29 ERA in 54 appearances. In 49.1 innings, he struck out 55 hitters while walking 37. Zuber is a four-pitch pitcher who relies heavily on his four-seam fastball and slider. He throws his fastball in the mid-90s and slider in the mid-80s. Zuber also throws a curveball and a change-up.
The Diamondbacks hope Zuber will be ready to go by spring training; it will be about nine months away from should surgery by then.
