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.
