Diamondbacks' Andres Chaparro: Reaches agreement with Arizona
Chaparro agreed to a deal with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
Chaparro was one of the more coveted minor-league free agents on the market this winter, having put up 25 home runs and 89 RBI across 137 games this past season with the Triple-A affiliate of the Yankees.
