The Arizona Diamondbacks have reached agreement on a one-year, $1.75 million contract with 41-year-old right-hander Takashi Saito.
The former All-Star went 4-2 with a 2.03 ERA in 30 relief appearances for the NL Central champion Milwaukee Brewers last season.
Saito is 21-15 with 84 saves and a 2.18 ERA over parts of six seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston, Atlanta and Milwaukee. Opponents have hit .199 against him with 389 strikeouts and 103 walks in 322 games.
Saito's best season was as Dodgers' closer in 2006, when he had 47 saves in 50 opportunities.
