The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to terms with All-Star right-handed pitcher Takashi Saito on a one-year contract worth a reported $1.75 million. The D-backs have fortified their bullpen significantly this winter after already having markedly improved upon the 2010 model.
BEST OF MAXIM
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.

As they made their march to the NL West title in 2011, the Diamondbacks were basically a two-man show at the end of the game.

When it comes to the Diamondbacks’ Kevin Towers, the ability to construct a solid bullpen without breaking the bank is clearly the feather in his cap. Towers first worked that magic during his 15-year tenure with the Padres, before bringing it with him to Arizona in September...
D-backs manager Kirk Gibson, ace right-hander Ian Kennedy and fan Ian McMillan gave Arizona three winners during the GIBBY Awards.
Well, we all know that there ain't much more happening in Colletti-land for the rest of this off-season (cries). But at least we can keep up with some former Dodgers and where they're headed!
The Arizona Diamondbacks signed 41-year-old Takashi Saito for one year, $1.75M. So I guess we'll see Sammy around Chavez Ravine a bit more in 2012 (relative to when he played...
