The Diamondbacks have signed reliever Kameron Loe to a minor league deal, MLB.com’s Bernie Pleskoff reports. Loe was released by the Braves on Monday. He’ll report to Triple-A Reno.

Loe, 32, has been well-traveled lately. He signed with the Giants in January, but they decided to head in another direction, releasing him at the end of spring training. The Royals grabbed him as a free agent in April, but they released him on May 24 after posting a 4.09 ERA in 11 innings at Triple-A Omaha. The Braves signed him two days later.

In 17 1/3 innings with Triple-A Gwinnett this season, Loe posted an 8.83 ERA with a 16/3 K/BB ratio.
