Despite not starting Monday's game, Pacheco went 1-for-3 with his second home run after replacing Paul Goldschmidt in a blowout loss to the Nationals.

Pacheco is batting .250/.349/.417 in a part-time role for the D-Backs. Starting catcher Tuffy Gosewisch has been better at the dish of late, which squeezes his opportunities for playing time. Pacheco can be helpful is deep leagues thanks to his position flexibility, but he hasn't hit enough to claim a starting job with the D-Backs or on your roster.

Pacheco went 1-for-4 with two runs and a walk Saturday in a loss to the Padres.

With the signing of Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Pacheco needs to show that he can be productive or risk losing what little playing time he has. He doesn't have a ton of power, but he is showing good patience at the plate this year (12.5 percent walk rate) and has posted a .242/.350/.333 line.

The Diamondbacks are expected to sign Jarrod Saltalamacchia, according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic.

While it's not clear whether Saltalamacchia will be signed to a major league or minor league deal, when he reaches the D-Backs it will likely have a negative impact on Pacheco's at-bats. His ability to play other positions may help him retain some value, but his route to playing time is much tougher with fewer at-bats available behind the plate.

Pacheco went 1-for-3 with a run scored and a walk Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Pacheco started for the second time in three games, going 3-for-7 with a home run, a walk, two runs, and three RBI over those two games. He has a .261/.370/.391 line in 27 plate appearances on the season. With starting catcher Tuffy Gosewisch struggling at the plate, Pacheco could be in line for more playing time.

Pacheco hit his first home run of the season while going 2-for-4 Wednesday in a win over the Rockies. He scored a run and drove in three in the contest.

This was just Pacheco's second start in the past week, as Tuffy Gosewisch is catching nearly every day and there is not much room at either corner infield position. Given Gosewisch's struggles (batting .177 on the year), it's possible Pacheco could start to see a bit more playing time, but his value is low until such time.

Pacheco was officially added to the 25-man roster.

Both Gerald Laird and Jordan Pacheco made the 25-man roster, so Arizona will have two backup catchers behind Tuffy Gosewisch.

Pacheco signed a minor league contract with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports.

The Diamondbacks claimed Pacheco off waivers from the Rockies last June, keeping him on the roster for the rest of the season before outrighting him in November. The 28-year-old's contact skills have taken a dive since he batted .309 as a rookie, but his ability to play catcher and the corner infield spots make him a useful player to keep around the organization for depth purposes.

Pacheco has become a minor league free agent, Baseball America's Matt Eddy reports.

He was outrighted by the Diamondbacks last week, and opted to become a free agent. He has little fantasy value at this point as he is unlikely to have a major league role with a team out of camp next season.

Pacheco was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Monday.

The 28-year-old batted .272 in 47 games after joining the Diamondbacks in mid-June, but it was an empty number, as he slugged just .321 and drew a mere three walks in 85 plate appearances. Perhaps he'll receive an invite to attend major league spring training, but Pacheco may be hard-pressed to return to the majors with Arizona now that he's off the 40-man roster.

Pacheco went 0-for-1 in a pinch-hit opportunity in the Diamondbacks' 5-0 loss to the Giants on Wednesday.

Pacheco has been limited to pinch hitting in September, with Miguel Montero getting most of the playing time. He batted .163 in August, which didn't help his cause. He's 0-for-3 in his only at-bats in September.
