PHOENIX (AP) — Catcher Caleb Joseph and the Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to a one-year contract that calls for a $1.1 million salary in the major leagues and a $250,000 salary in the minors.
Arizona opened a roster spot by placing right-hander Taijuan Walker on the 60-day injured list on Wednesday.
PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks have avoided arbitration with nine of their 10 arbitration-eligible players, leaving only left-handed reliever T.J. McFarland without a deal.
Among those reaching agreements Friday were shortstop Nick Ahmed, outfielder David Peralta, third baseman Jake Lamb and starting pitcher Robbie Ray.
PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks placed left-hander Robbie Ray on the 10-day disabled list Monday with a strained oblique, the second starting pitcher the team has lost to injury already this season.
Right-hander Taijuan Walker is out for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.
PHOENIX (AP) — Diamondbacks right-hander Taijuan Walker is headed for season-ending surgery to repair a partial elbow ligament tear.
The 25-year-old Walker pitched just two innings in his last start Saturday at Los Angeles before departing due to discomfort in his right arm. He had an MRI on Tuesday, then sought a second opinion and was headed back to Arizona on Wednesday after speaking with a doctor in New York.
PHOENIX (AP) — A person familiar with the deal says the Arizona Diamondbacks and infielder Ketel Marte have agreed to a $24 million, five-year contract.

The 28-year-old was 14-13 with a 4.03 ERA last season and made $3.95 million.
He has a 45-47 record with a 4.13 ERA in five seasons with the Diamondbacks. After going 14-8 with a 3.41 ERA and making the All-Star Game in 2013, he missed 2014 and part of 2015 after Tommy John surgery.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Clayton Kershaw still hasn't figured out how to dominate in October. This time, he couldn't even keep the ball in the yard.
Justin Turner and the Los Angeles Dodgers made sure it hardly mattered in a strong postseason opener.
Turner homered and drove in five runs, Kershaw won despite giving up four long balls and the Dodgers roared to a 9-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night in Game 1 of their NL Division Series.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dodgers relievers Pedro Baez and Ross Stripling are on Los Angeles' roster for the NL Division Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks have put four of their five starting pitchers on the roster for Wednesday night's National League wild-card game against the Colorado Rockies.
