Nick Evans had a strong day at the dish, going 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored as a split-squad Diamondbacks team topped the Angels 7-2 in Cactus League play.
Evans is back in camp with the Diamondbacks after leaving to play in Japan midway through the 2014 season. While he's having a strong spring hitting .333 (8-for-24), he isn't expected to crack the Opening Day roster and will function as organizational depth at Triple-A Reno to begin the year.

Nick Evans has not yet signed a contract with Japan's Rakuten Golden Eagles.

A report Saturday suggested that the deal was done, but it appears that was premature. Evans remains on the Diamondbacks' roster for now, though he is expected to sign with Rakuten in the coming days. "It's definitely something I had in my mind that would be exciting to do, but as of right now I'm still a Diamondback," he said.

Diamondbacks reassigned INFs Nick Evans, Nick Ahmed, Jake Lamb, OF Danny Dorn, RHPs Adam Russell, Matt Stites, Jake Barrett, Mike Bolsinger and C Bobby Wilson to minor league camp.

As is the case with early spring cuts, there are no real surprises among the group here. Evans, who was signed late last spring, slashed .267/.357/.449 with 19 homers and 81 RBI at Double-A Mobile in 2013.

Diamondbacks signed INF Nick Evans to a minor league contract.

Evans hit .214/.313/.214 with two RBI in 14 at-bats for the Dodgers this spring before being released on March 18. He's displayed solid power potential in the minors before, and could be a candidate to see time as a reserve outfielder for the D'Backs if Cody Ross has to spend more time than anticipated on the DL. For now, he'll serve as depth at the Triple-A level.

Thu, Mar 29, 2012 11:44:00 AM

Pirates signed INF-OF Nick Evans to a minor league contract.

He'll also receive an invite to spring training. Evans, who turns 26 in January, has a .256/.305/.407 batting line over 419 plate appearances in the big leagues as a member of the Mets. While he was underutilized in New York, he stands a decent chance to earn a bench spot on the Bucs' Opening Day roster.
