The Arizona Diamondbacks and infielder Daniel Descalso agreed to a one-year, 1.5 million deal with a $2 million club option for 2018.

Descalso will likely serve as the backup in the Diamondbacks’ infield should he get through spring training healthy. He has the ability to play both third base and second base. The 30-year-old spent the last two seasons with the Colorado Rockies. He hit .239/.322/.382 with 60 RBI in 200 games over the last two years in Colorado.

Arizona designated Phil Gosselin for assignment to make room for Descalso.
