Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports that the Diamondbacks have signed reliever Neftali Feliz.’s Steve Gilbert confirms the report and adds that it’s a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.

Feliz, 29, spent last season with the Brewers and Royals, compiling an aggregate 5.48 ERA with a 37/23 K/BB ratio in 46 innings. He went on the disabled list in August last season with ulnar nerve palsy, but was recently deemed healthy by Dr. James Andrews.

As the type of contract indicates, Feliz will have to perform his way onto the Diamondbacks’ 25-man roster out of spring training.
