Diamondbacks Sign Cody Ransom

The Diamondbacks have signed Cody Ransom, according to MLB.com's transactions page.  The veteran utility infielder has a career .702 OPS accumulated over eight Major League seasons with the Giants, Astros, Yankees and, most recently, the Phillies. 

Ransom, who turns 35 in February, is a native of Mesa, Arizona.  He is the second utilityman the D'Backs have signed in the past week, following their acquisition of Willie Bloomquist.  This could be a minor league depth move for the Snakes, since the club already has Bloomquist, Tony Abreu, Ryan Roberts and others battling for a backup infield spot.

    Oh no, time for Dbacks fans to panic. We signed spring training fodder just like the other 29 teams do ever year too!

  6. Wow! These sure are some “great” under-the-radar moves the Diamondbacks are making………..!!

    I want him to make the roster just for the possibility of a “King’s Ransom” ESPN headline.

    This is a solid pick-up for the Dbacks! Ransoms defensive ability mixed with an amazing OPS plus versatility, he has the opportunity to be the next….PERSON DFA’ed!!!
