Report: Eric Hinske sign one-year contract with Diamondbacks

MLB

The Diamondbacks have signed utility man Eric Hinske to a one-year contract, according to Ken Rosenthal:

Hinske made $1.5 million with the Braves last season before becoming a free agent. The 34-year-old veteran can play first base, third base and outfield. He hit a career-low .197 in 147 plate appearances last year.

Hinske, 35, was drafted by the Cubs in the 17th round of the 1998 draft. He made his major league debut with the Blue Jays in 2002 and was named the AL Rookie of the Year.

Who needs a player that ages so quickly?  He gained a year from one sentence to the next.  At that rate he will be 87 years old by opening day.
