D-backs, Melancon have 2-year deal

The D-backs made their first big move of the offseason, coming to an agreement on a two-year deal with reliever Mark Melancon, according to a report from MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal on Wednesday. The club has not confirmed the move, which is pending a physical and is worth $14 million, per a report from MLB Network insider Jon Heyman.

He was a late-bloomer, but Melancon became one of the elite closers in the game in his late 20s with the Pirates. From 2013-15, the right-hander posted a 1.85 ERA with 100 saves for Pittsburgh, helping the franchise break a 21-year playoff drought with three consecutive postseason appearances. When the Bucs fell out of contention in ’16, they traded Melancon to the Nationals, for whom he continued to thrive, to the tune of a 1.82 ERA with 17 saves in 30 appearances down the stretch.
