  • Diamondbacks Sign Jeurys Familia To Minor-League Deal

    The Arizona Diamondbacks signed veteran reliever and closer Jeurys Familia to a minor-league deal on Wednesday that includes an invite to major-league spring training. The 33-year-old right-hander was with the Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies last year and struggled to the tune of a 6.09 ERA (4.94 FIP), 1.80 WHIP, 41 strikeouts and 22 walks in 44 1/3 relief innings. He was much better for the New York Mets in 2021, although he has only one save since 2019. Should Familia make Arizona's Opening Day roster, he will bring some veteran relief depth after recording 125 saves in 11 major-leagues seasons, including a league-high 51 with the Mets back in 2016. Familia won't have any fantasy value in spring drafts.

  • Make Or Break Year: Lourdes Gurriel Jr.

    The Diamondbacks and Blue Jays combined on one of the winter’s biggest trades back in December, though for all of the attention the deal received, much more focus was (understandably) placed on the involvement of Daulton Varsho and Gabriel Moreno than on the fact that Lourdes Gurriel Jr. was now headed to Arizona.  Varsho is…

  • Zac Gallen Agrees To One-Year, $5.6 Million Deal

    The Arizona Diamondbacks and starting pitcher Zac Gallen avoided salary arbitration on Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $5.6 million deal. In his third full season with the Snakes, Gallen had a career-best season, going 12-4 with a 2.54 ERA (3.05 FIP), a league-best 0.91 WHIP, a league-best 5.9 hits per nine innings and a 26.9 percent strikeout rate in 31 starts over a career-high 184 innings to come in fifth in National League Cy Young voting. The 27-year-old right-hander came into last season with an ERA above 4.00 in just one of his three seasons, with the other resulting in sub-3.00 ERAs. While he did strike out a career-low 9.4 hitters in 2022, all of his other peripherals look strong as he heads into his fifth MLB season.

  • P.J. Higgins Signs With Diamondbacks

    The Arizona Diamondbacks signed free-agent catcher P.J. Higgins to a minor-league deal on Thursday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training. Higgins comes to the desert after playing in 74 games for the Chicago Cubs in 2022, finishing with a .229/.310/.383 slash line with a .693 OPS, six home runs, 30 RBI and 23 runs scored in just his second major-league season. Arizona already has Carson Kelly, Gabriel Moreno and Jose Herrera on the active roster at the catcher position, so Higgins will have to play well in spring training to win an Opening Day roster spot with his new club. The 29-year-old is unlikely to have any real fantasy value in 2023, aside from maybe deep two-catcher leagues if he sees semi-regular playing time in the big leagues.
