News: Worth signed a minor league deal with the Diamondbacks on Monday that includes an invite to spring training, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.
Impact: Worth reportedly had multiple minor league offers including one in which the team requested he become a pitcher. He spent 2014 mostly with Triple-A Toledo, batting .211/.296/.300 with one home run and 18 RBI along with nine stolen bases. He seems to be facing an uphill battle for a roster spot heading into spring training, but a strong showing could give him a chance to nab a utility spot given Worth's ability to play second, shortstop and third.
