Diamondbacks' Yairo Munoz: Latches on with Diamondbacks
Munoz signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
He'll be in major-league camp during spring training. Munoz, 28, saw action in 29 games for the Phillies last season, putting up a .654 OPS with three home runs. He'll try to win a utility job in Arizona.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jandel Gustave: Receives NRI from Arizona
Gustave signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Gustave has been given an invitation to major-league spring training, where he'll compete for a spot in the Diamondbacks' Opening Day bullpen. The 30-year-old boasts a career 3.56 ERA over 91 relief innings in the big leagues, although he's struck out only 72 despite a fastball which reaches the upper-90s. Gustave's 2022 season ended in August due to a forearm injury, but it would appear doctors in Arizona have cleared him.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Ali Sanchez: Clears waivers
Sanchez was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Jan. 5 after clearing waivers.
Sanchez has spent time in three organizations this offseason after being moved off the 40-man rosters of the Tigers, Pirates and Diamondbacks, but he looks set to stick around in Arizona now that he's gone unclaimed off waivers upon being designated for assignment in late December. The 26-year-old will likely be invited to big-league spring training and could get the chance to compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster if Arizona decides to keep a third catcher behind Gabriel Moreno and Carson Kelly....

Diamondbacks' Taylor Widener: Clears waivers
Widener was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Jan. 5 after clearing waivers.
The 28-year-old right-hander thus remains in the Arizona organization after being recently moved off the 40-man roster. Widener made 14 appearances out of the Diamondbacks bullpen in 2022, logging a 3.63 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 17.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jake Hager: Back in Arizona on MiLB pact
The Diamondbacks announced Saturday that Hager was re-signed on a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to MLB spring training.
Hager concluded the 2022 season as a member of Arizona's 40-man roster and 28-man active roster before being outrighted to Triple-A Reno in early November. Rather than electing free agency and trying his luck elsewhere, the 29-year-old will stick in Arizona's organization and compete for a utility role in spring training. During his sparse action in the majors in 2022, Hager slashed .240/.345/.280 across 59 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: OK for spring training
Ahmed (shoulder) is expected to be ready for the start of spring training, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Ahmed told Piecoro he's been swinging "full go" for about a month, and that he's making progress in his throwing program. The shortstop missed the second half of the 2022 season after undergoing season-ending surgery in June to fix a labrum tear and two bone spurs in his right shoulder. Assuming good health, he'll likely open the 2023 season as the Diamondbacks' starting shortstop, but his lack of offensive upside severely limits his potential fantasy output.... See More ...

Diamondbacks' Eric Yardley: Inks minors deal with Arizona
Yardley signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Yardley spent all of 2022 at the Triple-A level, collecting a 5.79 ERA over 37 appearances in the Blue Jays and Cubs organizations. The 32-year-old sidearmer has posted a 3.52 ERA across parts of three major-league seasons but struggled during his most recent stint in the big leagues in 2021 with a 6.75 ERA and 5:10 K:BB in 18.2 frames....

Diamondbacks' Jeurys Familia: Signs minor-league contract
Familia signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday with an invitation to spring training, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.
Familia will look to carve out a spot in the Diamondbacks' bullpen ahead of Opening Day. The 33-year-old right-hander struggled to a 6.09 ERA and 1.81 WHIP in 44.1 innings last season between the Phillies and Red Sox, though he did show pretty well during his final year with the Mets in 2021. He's sitting on 125 career saves but has added to that total only once since the end of the 2018 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Austin Adams: Signs with Diamondbacks
Adams (forearm) signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Jan. 20.
Adams elected free agency after being outrighted to Triple-A El Paso by the Padres in November. The right-hander underwent surgery to repair a tear in his right flexor tendon, and it's unknown if he'll be able to participate in spring training. When healthy, Adams could provide help for the Arizona bullpen, but the Diamondbacks will have to add him to the 40-man roster for that to happen.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jesse Biddle: Catches on with Diamondbacks
Biddle signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
Biddle pitched in Japan in 2022, holding a 2.83 ERA and 68:34 K:BB over 57.1 frames for the Orix Buffaloes. The 31-year-old left-hander last appeared in the majors with Atlanta in 2021 when he posted an 8.44 ERA over eight appearances. Biddle is a bat-misser but has always been held back by a lack of control.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Avoids arbitration
Kelly signed a one-year, $4.275 million contract with the Diamondbacks on Friday to avoid arbitration, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Kelly's numbers took a substantial dip between 2021 and 2022, as the 28-year-old backstop slashed just .211/.282/.334 through 354 plate appearances last season. Kelly's decline, combined with the acquisition of Gabriel Moreno from Toronto, could end up limiting the number of chances he gets at the plate in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Inks one-year deal
Walker signed a one-year, $6.5 million contract with Arizona on Friday to avoid arbitration, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Walker finished 2022 with career highs in home runs (36) and RBI (94), and he recorded his highest OPS since 2019. As a result, the veteran first baseman receives a well-deserved raise from the $2.6 million he made in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Avoids arbitration
Gallen signed a one-year, $5.6 million contract with Arizona on Friday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
After recording a sub-3.00 ERA in three of his four seasons in the majors, Gallen was due for a healthy raise this offseason in his first year of arbitration eligibility. The 27-year-old righty posted career bests with a 2.54 ERA and 0.91 WHIP through 184 innings in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Kyle Lewis: Reaches deal with Arizona
Lewis agreed to a one-year, $1.61 million contract with the Diamondbacks on Friday to avoid arbitration, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
It's the first year of arbitration eligibility for Lewis, who was acquired from the Mariners in November. The 2020 AL Rookie of the Year has played in only 54 big-league games across the past two seasons and produced a .215/.301/.366 slash line during that span.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' P.J. Higgins: Signs with Diamondbacks
Higgins signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Thursday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
Higgins was designated for assignment by the Cubs in late December and elected free agency Monday after clearing waivers. He was quickly able to find a new team and will serve as a non-roster invitee during spring training in 2023. The 29-year-old appeared in 74 games for the Cubs last year and slashed .229/.310/.383 with six home runs, 30 RBI and 23 runs.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' J.B. Bukauskas: Designated for assignment
Bukauskas was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Bukauskas sustained a shoulder injury in March of 2022 that forced him to miss the start of last season, and he didn't make any major-league appearances for Arizona. He posted a 2.79 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 19.1 innings over 20 relief appearances at Triple-A Reno in 2022, and he'll lose his spot on the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster after the team re-signed Zach Davies on Wednesday....

Diamondbacks' Edwin Uceta: Designated for assignment
Uceta was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Thursday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Uceta split time between the Triple-A and major-league clubs last year and posted a 5.82 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 17 innings over 10 relief appearances with the Diamondbacks. However, he'll lose his spot on the team's 40-man roster after Arizona signed Evan Longoria to a one-year contract.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zach Davies: Rejoins Arizona
Davies re-signed Wednesday with the Diamondbacks on a one-year, $5 million contract that includes up to $3 million in incentives, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
Though Davies declined his side of a $1.5 million mutual option for 2023 to become a free agent earlier this offseason, he'll ultimately return to Arizona at a higher salary figure for the upcoming campaign. While his peripherals weren't outstanding last season (4.71 SIERA, 8.8 K-BB%), Davies remained a serviceable innings eater at the back end of the rotation while logging 27 starts in total. Davies will likely open the 2023 season with a rotation spot, though he could give way to one of the Diamondbacks' many pitching prospects before the end of the year.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Joining D-backs
Longoria (thumb) agreed to a one-year contract with the Diamondbacks on Friday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
Despite being one of the older players in the game, Longoria still managed to put together a respectable 2022 campaign. He slashed .244/.315/.451 through 298 plate appearances with San Francisco, with a few IL stints mixed in throughout the season. He will likely split time at third base with Josh Rojas and get the nod to start whenever the D-backs face a lefty on the mound.... See More ... See Less
