Arizona Diamondbacks Add Two New Players Via Free Agency

The Arizona Diamondbacks have recently bolstered their roster with the signing of two players to minor league contracts.

Left-handed pitcher Logan Allen and infielder Kevin Newman are the latest additions to the team.

Logan Allen, a 26-year-old lefty, was signed to a minor league contract as announced by the Diamondbacks' Triple-A team in Reno.

He is set to participate in the big league camp as a non-roster invitee for Spring Training​​.

It's important to note that this Logan Allen should not be confused with the Cleveland Guardians pitcher who shares the same name.

This Allen, despite his potential, has yet to find significant success in the Major Leagues​. He holds a 5.89 ERA across 33 appearances over his four-year career.

Kevin Newman, a 30-year-old infielder, also signed a minor league deal with the Diamondbacks, which includes an invitation to Spring Training.

Newman spent the 2023 season with the Cincinnati Reds, where he had a batting average of .253, hit three home runs, and had 28 RBIs in 225 at-bats.

Prior to his stint with the Reds, Newman played five seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates​​. Photo Credit: Reggie Hildred-USA TODAY Sports
