12:50pm: The Diamondbacks signed first baseman/outfielder Eric Hinske to a one-year contract, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.  The 35-year-old struggled with the Braves this year, posting a .197/.272/.311 line in 147 plate appearances.  He's represented by MVP Sports Group.

Hinske, the 2002 AL Rookie of the Year winner, has served as a solid bench bat at times and owns a .236/.315/.407 line over the last three seasons, facing mostly right-handed pitching.
