Watch as Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt sent his team to a Wednesday afternoon walkoff defeat of the visiting Marlins with this two-run double to left-center field …
It was the fifth career walkoff hit for Goldschmidt, who’s batting .312/.404/.558 with 61 RBI in 92 games this season for the Diamondbacks. Arizona (39-54 on the year) won two of three against Miami.
The Indians have signed free agent outfielder Melky Cabrera to a minor league deal. The pact is pending a physical.
Cabrera, 33, went unsigned this past offseason after putting up a season of .285/.324/.423 with 17 homers and 85 RBI with the White Sox and the Royals.
Cabrera will report to Columbus once he passes his physical and, according to Paul Hoynes, there are no guarantees being made to him that he’ll get playing time. That said, the Indians aren’t getting much outfield production from anyone besides Michael Brantley, and Cabrera’s status as a switch hitter would give Terry Francona some flexibility, so it would not be shocking to see him on the big club after some reps in the minors.
