The Arizona Diamondbacks added to their beleaguered pitching staff by resigning right-hander Aaron Heilman worth a reported $2 million. Heilman was one of the very few bright spots for the Diamondbacks bullpen last season, which ranked at the bottom of nearly every category.
After a disappointing 2010 campaign Heilman entered the free agent market hoping to ink a multi-year deal. Unfortunately the economics of the game found few suitors for the right-hander’s services.
