Two-year deal to an old, not-good backup infielder. Sounds like something we'd do.


The Diamondbacks officially signed Geoff Blum to a two-year deal, according to the team. When it became apparent that the D'Backs were close to a deal, Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona reported that the contract will be worth just over $2MM. D'Backs GM Kevin Towers says signing Blum is the first step to improving his team's bench.


“Geoff is a veteran that can play nearly every position on the field while also having the experience of contributing to key situations late in the game as a pinch-hitter off of the bench,” Towers said.


Blum hit .267/.321/.356 in 218 plate appearances in 2010 and missed time with elbow and neck injuries. The 37-year-old played all four infield positions and went 14 for 42 as a pinch hitter, before Houston declined his $1.65MM option for 2011.
