Diamondbacks signed UTIL Erick Hinske to a one-year, $1.35 million contract.
The deal was agreed to on Tuesday afternoon. Hinske batted just .197/.272/.311 with two home runs and 13 RBI in 91 games this past season for the Braves, but he's usually much better and should be a fine bench piece.

Eric Hinske was ejected from Friday's game against the Cardinals after arguing a called third strike.
Hinske, who was pinch-hitting in the seventh, tried to hold up on a two-strike pitch by right-hander Mitchell Boggs, but home plate umpire Mike Muchlinski ruled that he went around. Hinske objected to the call and Muchlinski naturally didn't take kindly to such actions.

Eric Hinske went 4-for-6 and hit a go-ahead homer in the top of the 11th as the Braves beat the Rockies 9-8 on Friday.
The Rockies scored once after Hinske's two-run homer, but Craig Kimbrel was able to finish up from there. Hinske is off to an awfully nice 14-for-34 start at the plate. However, it's unlikely to lead to an expanded role with Chipper Jones healthy and Jason Heyward producing.

Filling in for the injured Jason Heyward in right field, Eric Hinske went 4-for-4 with an RBI in Monday's loss to the Pirates.
Hinske doubled his hit total for the year with tonight's effort. Heyward is expected to sit out at least one more game, and Hinske has likely earned another start.

Braves exercised OF Eric Hinkse's $1.5 million option for 2012.
Hinske batted just .233 with a .311 on-base percentage in 264 plate appearances this season, but he provides the Braves with a power bat off the bench and should remain a valuable piece of the roster moving forward. He's finished with 10 or more homers in eight of his 10 major league seasons.
