After rumors circulated that the Arizona Diamondbacks had offered their backup catcher position to free agent Rod Barajas, Jack Magruder of Fox Sports Arizona tweeted that the team has instead re-signed Wil Nieves to a one-year contract worth $800,000.

Nieves signed as a free agent with the Diamondbacks in August of 2012 after catcher Henry Blanco suffered a season-ending injury. In 16 games with the D-backs, Nieves hit .306 (11-for-38) with one home run and three RBI.

Nieves is a nine-year big league vet who has spent time with the Padres, Yankees, Nationals, Brewers and Rockies.
