D’Backs Designate Ransom For Assignment

SATURDAY: Ransom has accepted his assignment to Triple-A Reno, according to Jack Magruder of FOXSportsArizona.com (via Twitter).

WEDNESDAY: The D'Backs announced that they designated infielder Cody Ransom to create 25-man roster space for Aaron Hill and John McDonald. The first roster spot opened up yesterday, when Arizona sent Kelly Johnson to Toronto in the deal that brought Hill and McDonald to the National League. The D'Backs now have full 25 and 40-man rosters.

Ransom, 35, appeared in 12 games for Arizona this year, hitting .152/.243/.303 in his 37 trips to the plate. He played short and third in 2011 and also has big league experience at first, second and left field. A nine-year veteran, Ransom has a .220/.304/.383 line in 383 career plate appearances.

    Brian Cashman, you better not let Joe Girardi talk you into grabbing this guy again!

  4. JMac… Welcome to the starting SS position!

  5. I’ve always rooted for him. I liked watching him play as a Yank it just didn’t work out as well as everyone hoped. I’m sure he’ll find a bench job on some almost contender or a starting job somewhere else.
