D’Backs To Sign Ron Mahay

The Diamondbacks agreed to sign left-handed reliever Ron Mahay to a minor league deal, the team announced. Mahay will head to extended Spring Training for a few days and will likely be assigned to Triple-A afterward, at which point left-handed reliever Joe Paterson may see his job security diminish.

Mahay, 39, appeared in 41 games for the Twins last year and posted a 3.44 ERA with a 42.5% ground ball rate, 6.6 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9. In 14 big league seasons, Mahay has posted 7.9 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 against left-handed hitters.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic first reported the agreement (Twitter links)
