Arias was released by the Diamondbacks on Thursday, Diamondbacks broadcaster Steve Berthiaume reports.
A non-roster invitee to spring training, the 31-year-old Arias probably needed an injury or two in front of him to have a real shot at the Opening Day roster. He offers defensive versatility and decent contact skills, but only has seven home runs and 13 stolen bases through 1,052 career at-bats.
Arias agreed to a minor league deal with the Diamondbacks on Sunday that includes an invite to spring training, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.
Arias's deal will give him a chance to showcase his skills at spring training, with the middle infield likely representing the weakest portion of the Diamondbacks' roster heading into camp. The 31-year-old saw action in 40 games with the Giants last season, batting just .207/.207/.276 with one home run and four RBI in 58 at-bats.
The Giants designated first baseman Joaquin Arias for assignment Monday, the team announced. Arias hit .297 with one home run and four RBI in 58 at-bats this season.

So, after starting each of the last eight games, Crawford will take a seat in favor of Joaquin Arias on Thursday. Crawford should be back in the lineup on Friday.
Giants second baseman Joe Panik and shortstop Brandon Crawford are back in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers, the team announced.
