Diamondbacks sign reliever Tyler Clippard to two-year deal
The Diamondbacks and relief pitcher Tyler Clippard have agreed to a two-year deal worth $12.25 million, the team announced on Monday.
The news was first reported by Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.
According to Rosenthal, Clippard will earn $4.1 million in 2016, $4.15 million in 2017 and receive a $4 million signing bonus.
The nine-year veteran spent time with the Athletics and Mets last season, posting a 2.62 ERA in 71 innings. The righthander debuted with the Yankees in 2007, and pitched for the Nationals for seven years before being traded to Oakland last off-season.
Clippard joins shortstop Jean Segura as the Diamondbacks’ most recent acquisitions in what has been a busy off-season.
