Bob Howry Signs with Arizona Diamondbacks

Phil HoopsCorrespondent IDecember 27, 2009

The Arizona Diamondbacks have come to terms with reliever, Bob Howry , reports Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic [Hat tip MLB Trade Rumors].

Terms of the deal are not immediately available, however it includes an option for the 2011 season and is rumored to be worth somewhere in the ball park of $2 million to $3 million.

Last season with the San Francisco Giants, the Arizona native appeared in 63 games and pitched to an ERA of 3.39. His K:BB ratio was 2:1 (46:23).

Throughout his eleven year career, Howry has an ERA of 3.66.

This is a pretty solid signing for the D’Backs in my opinion as it gives them a viable setup man to help strengthen a bullpen that includes ex-Met Aaron Heilman and Chad Qualls .

Although the Mets were never publicly connected to Howry, I think that these are the types of players they should be targeting. Although Howry’s numbers are not earth shattering he is a very consistent pitcher.
