D-backs Vs. Giants: Cody Ransom At Shortstop Against Former Team

Cody Ransom has been an Arizona Diamondback -- again -- since Saturday, and on Monday he gets the start at shortstop against the team that originally drafted him in the ninth round in 1998.

Ransom, a Chandler High School graduate who also played at South Mountain Community College and Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, made his major-league debut with the Giants in 2001. After bouncing around at the AAA level for several different organizations since then, he was claimed off waivers by the Diamondbacks over the weekend.

Ransom started the 2012 in the D-backs organization. It's been that kind of a career for the journeyman.

Arizona's lineup on Labor Day against the NL West-leading Giants:

CF Chris Young

2B Aaron Hill

RF Justin Upton

LF Jason Kubel

1B Paul Goldschmidt

C Miguel Montero

3B Chris Johnson

SS Cody Ransom

P Patrick Corbin

For the Giants, Xavier Nady makes his debut at AT&T Park. Here's their lineup:

CF Angel Pagan

2B Marco Scutaro

3B Pablo Sandoval

1B Buster Posey

RF Hunter Pence

LF Xavier Nady

C Hector Sanchez

SS Brandon Crawford

For all things Diamondbacks, head over to AZ Snakepit.
