Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks have inked pitcher Rubby De La Rosa to a minor league contract. If he makes the major league team out of spring training, he’ll earn $750,000 with an additional $2.75 million available in incentives.

De La Rosa, 27, joined the Diamondbacks in December 2014 from the Red Sox in the Wade Miley trade. The Diamondbacks non-tendered De La Rosa last month.

In his two seasons with the D-Backs, De La Rosa compiled a 4.59 ERA with a 204/83 K/BB ratio in 239 1/3 innings. He was limited to 50 2/3 innings in 2016 due to elbow issues. The D-Backs plan to transition him to a bullpen role in an attempt to keep him healthier.
