Kristopher Negron went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Giants.

Negron hit his first home run of the spring in the sixth inning of Saturday's game. He also struck out in the contest. The Diamondbacks inked him to a minor league deal in late November. He spent the 2016 season in the Cubs system, posting a .256/.308/.403 triple-slash while swatting nine home runs, driving in 43 and swiping 23 bases. There is no fantasy upside here, but the 31-year-old outfield figures to serve as a nice depth piece for Arizona during the coming season.
