Trevor Bauer, the former UCLA standout who was the No. 3 pick in last year's draft, will make his debut for the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday against the Atlanta Braves.

Diamondbacks Manager Kirk Gibson said Tuesday the 21-year-old right-hander will be called up from triple-A Reno and join the team on Wednesday.
