Arizona Diamondbacks Sign RHP David Hernandez To A Two-Year Deal

On Sunday, the Arizona Diamondbacks came to terms with right-handed pitcher David Hernandez on a two-year contract, according to MLB.com.

"I love how the organization has treated me since I've been over here," Hernandez said. "I can see myself living here one day past baseball. I'm definitely grateful and hopefully I can be here well after two years."

Hernandez joined the Diamondbacks via trade in 2011 from Baltimore for third baseman Mark Reynolds. Hernandez has a 3.15 ERA in 141 career relief appearances and has continued to improve over time, including setting career-highs last season with 11 saves, 74 games and 77 strikeouts. So far this season, he carries a 2.90 ERA with 45 strikeouts.

"He's been great for us since he's come over here," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "He's been dominant for us, he's healthy and he's got a golden arm. We believe in him and what he can do in the future."
