According to Matt Eddy of Baseball America, the Diamondbacks have re-signed veteran infielder Cody Ransom to a minor league contract.

Ransom posted a stellar .317/.405/.629 batting line with 27 home runs, 29 doubles and 92 RBI in 432 plate appearances this past year at the Triple-A level, also swiping 10 bases in 13 attempts.

The 35-year-old was a flop when Arizona gave him a shot at major league playing time down the stretch, but he’ll function as quality organizational depth in 2012 for a team still unsure about Stephen Drew‘s recovery timetable from ankle and hernia surgeries.

    Cody Ransom! Wow! Start printing those World Series tix, AZ.
    A 35-year-old guy playing in the minor leagues…just in case you were wondering if there were still 35-year-old guys playing in the minor leagues.
    Real Giants fans remember Cody’s shining moment when he was still getting regular playing time in the MAJORS: booting a routine grounder vs. the Dodgers (The Finley walkoff HR game) that helped cost the Giants a shot at the 2004 playoffs.
