• The Diamondbacks are taking a chance on reliever Greg Holland after signing the three-time All-Star closer to a one-year, $3.5 million deal.

• Staying in the NL West, the Rockies have signed first baseman Mark Reynolds to a minor-league contract.

• The Marlins have had an extremely quiet offseason, but they made an addition on Tuesday evening, announcing the signing of infielder Neil Walker to a one-year deal that The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports is worth $2 million. Walker, who was considered an upper-echelon second baseman while playing for the Pirates and Mets, transitioned to a utility role with the Yankees last season and is expected to play a similar role with Miami — Sirius XM’s Craig Mish tweeted that the Marlins’ front office expects him to see action at first base, third base, and the corner outfield spots.
