The Diamondbacks signed right-hander Chris Jakubauskas to a minor league deal, MLBTR has learned. Earlier today, the 32-year-old himself hinted at the agreement on his Twitter account.
In 72 1/3 innings this past season, Jakubauskas posted a 5.72 ERA with 6.5 K/9, 3.6 BB/9 and a 43% ground ball rate for the Orioles. He has a career ERA of 5.58 with 5.4 K/9, 3.0 BB/9 and a 43.9% ground ball rate in parts of three seasons for the Orioles, Pirates and Mariners. Baltimore outrighted Jakubauskas off of its 40-man roster in October and he elected free agency.
