    Diamondbacks sign Kris Benson, Mark Reynolds

    Mar 15, 2010 - Kris Benson, the 35 year old once-hyped righty who came up with the Pirates, has signed on with Arizona, according to Ken Rosenthal. It's a minor league contract, but unlike most minor league contracts given to veteran players, this one doesn't have any out clauses should Benson fail to make the team.

    D-Backs avoid arb with Heilman, Qualls

    PHOENIX -- The D-backs avoided arbitration with a pair of players by signing relievers Chad Qualls and Aaron Heilman to one-year deals Monday.

    The signings leave the D-backs with just two unsigned arbitration-eligible players -- pitcher Edwin Jackson and shortstop Stephen Drew -- both of whom are represented by agent Scott Boras.

    Diamondbacks DFA Eric Byrnes, avoid arb with Montero and Jackson, sign LaRoche

    Arizona Republic - The Diamondbacks cut ties with Eric Byrnes on Friday to make room for free-agent acquisition Adam LaRoche.

    Byrnes has been a major disappointment since his three-year, $30 million extension kicked in at the start of the 2008 season.

    Arizona designated Byrnes for assignment. They are still responsible for his $11 million salary in 2010 and have 10 days to either trade him or release him.

    The Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to terms with Miguel Montero on a one-year contract reportedly worth $2 million on Friday, avoiding arbitration with the catcher.

    The 26-year-old set several career highs last season with a .294 batting average, 16 home runs and 59 RBIs in 128 games. The left-handed hitter also established career highs with 61 runs scored, 125 hits, 30 doubles, 38 walks, a .355 on-base percentage and a .478 slugging percentage.

    First baseman Adam LaRoche and the Arizona Diamondbacks finalized a 1-year contract yesterday that guarantees him $6 million.

    LaRoche gets $4.5 million this year, and the deal includes a $7.5 million mutual option for 2011 with a $1.5 million buyout.

    I'd also like to report that after this offseason, I am retiring from reporting the daily team by team transactions (and the Baseball Fever community breathes a collective sigh of relief). It takes far too long to do.

    Diamondbacks sign Kelly Johnson

    Free agent second baseman Kelly Johnson signed with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday giving Arizona a much needed left-handed bat for their lineup. Johnson joins keystone partner Stephen Drew and catcher Miguel Montero as the only sure every-day lefty hitters in the lineup.

    D-Backs sign Bob Howry

    PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks have signed reliever Bob Howry to a one-year contract with a club option for 2011.

    Terms weren't disclosed.

    The 36-year-old right-hander was 2-6 with a 3.39 ERA in 63 appearances with the San Francisco Giants last season. Right-handed batters hit just .207 against him.

    Howry has a 44-49 career record in parts of 12 seasons with the Chicago White Sox, Boston, Cleveland, Chicago Cubs and San Francisco.

    Howry grew up in the Phoenix area and attended Deer Valley High School in Glendale.

    D-Backs sign Jeff Bailey

    Jeff Bailey, who spent the last six years in the Red Sox organization, signed a minor-league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks,according to MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert ( via Twitter). Bailey, 31, had spent most of the past five years in Triple A Pawtucket, and was named 2008 International League Player of the Year when he hit .301 with a .405 OBP, .562 slugging and .967 OPS while clubbing 25 homers.

    Bailey played in 56 games in the majors for the Sox, hitting .228/.340/.434/.773 with six homers as a first baseman and outfielder. Bailey had been a catcher in his early career, but throwing issues sabotaged his work there, and he stopped catching during the 2005 season. Sox manager Terry Francona would often lament Bailey’s inability to stay behind the plate, since his bat likely would have ensured a sustained big-league career at that position, at least as a backup.

    Now, Bailey will try to forge a big-league spot with the Diamondbacks, who, according to Gilbert, have offered him an invitation to major-league camp.
