He was released in August and quickly signed with the Diamondbacks, for whom he appeared in 14 games near the end of the season. In that stint, he was 2-for-20 at the plate with eight strikeouts. Arizona released Paul on Aug. 29, solidifying his status as a free agent this offseason.

Paul's contract was selected by the Diamondbacks Friday.

Paul was just signed Thursday to a minor-league deal, but he will instead join the big-league club.

Paul will now get his first chance of the year to contribute in the majors, likely serving as a bench player for the D-backs.
