Analysis: Clippard returns to the team that drafted him in 2003, though he only appeared in six games for New York - all in 2007. He could be a candidate for some saves - he has 54 in his career - now that the Yankees have traded away Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller, but Dellin Betances is expected to fill the closer role on a regular basis.

Analysis: The deal with the right-hander, who turns 31 on Sunday, adds a proven reliever and additional late-game option for the Diamondbacks, who expect to be a contender after boosting their rotation by signing Zack Grienke and acquiring Shelby Miller in a trade with Atlanta. Clippard had a 2.92 ERA last year with the Oakland Athletics and New York Mets. He spent most of his nine-year major league career as setup man for the Washington Nationals.
