PHOENIX -- Catcher Rod Barajas has returned to the Arizona Diamondbacks, where he started his major league career.

The team said Sunday the 37-year-old agreed to a minor league contract. He will go to spring training and compete with Wil Nieves for a backup job behind Miguel Montero.

Barajas hit .206 with 11 homers and 31 RBI in 321 at-bats for Pittsburgh last year. According to STATS, he threw out just four of 97 runners attempting to steal on him.

He played for Arizona from 1999-03, then went to Texas (2004-06), Philadelphia (2007), Toronto (2008-09), the New York Mets (2010) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (2010-11).
