The Arizona Diamondbacks have signed shortstop Argenis Diaz. He was signed to a minor league deal, but financial terms of his deal were disclosed.

Once he officially arrives in the D’Backs organization, he’ll be assigned to the Reno Aces. He was released by the Cincinnati Reds after playing 53 games with the Louisville Bats.

During his tenure in Louisville, he had a .247 batting average with 1 home run and 18 RBI’s.

His signing with the D’Backs is more for organizational depth than anything else. He has not appeared in a Major League game since the 2010 season.

In fact, his 22-game tenure with the Pittsburgh Pirates were the most that he’s played at the highest level.

Diaz had a .242 batting average with 2 RBI’s in 33 at-bats. He also had a .306 on-base percentage with 10 strikeouts and 3 walks.
