Infielder takes Minor League deal, spring invite

D-backs reportedly re-sign Pacheco

The D-backs have re-signed Jordan Pacheco to a Minor League contract and invited him to Spring Training, SBNation.com reported late Wednesday night. The club has not confirmed the deal.

Pacheco, who will turn 29 on Jan. 30, had been outrighted off the D-backs' roster last month and became a free agent. He originally came to Arizona in June, when he was claimed off waivers from the Rockies.

Through parts of four big league seasons, Pacheco has been a versatile player, spending the bulk of his time at first base (114 games), third base (92) and catcher (41). Arizona used him mostly at first after acquiring him but also gave him time at third and second.

Between the Rockies and D-backs, Pacheco hit .255/.299/.333 last season, with no homers and 16 RBIs in 69 games. He owns a career line of .281/.316/.374.
