Hey, look — news that isn’t election-related!

FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Diamondbacks have signed right-hander Eddie Bonine to a minor league contract. The deal will pay him a $500,000 salary if he cracks the MLB roster.

Bonine posted a 4.63 ERA in 68 innings (one start, 46 relief appearances) in 2010 with the Tigers, then failed to reach the big league level in 2011 and later needed Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

The 31-year-old should be at full health when spring training gets underway next February.

    You forgot to mention that Bonine throws a knuckleball occasionally. They’ll kick you out of the club if you’re not more careful, Craig, about dropping these mandatory references.
