Jason Leblebijian, two-time All-Star with Bisons, signs with Diamondbacks

Infielder Jason Leblebijian, who made the International League All-Star team the last two seasons with the Buffalo Bisons, recently signed a minor league free agent contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Leblebijian, 27, hit .258 with 11 home runs and 60 runs batted in during 120 games with the Bisons in 2017 and .220 with 10 home runs and 41 RBI in 84 games last season. He had three stints on the disabled list in the final two months of last season and saw the arrival of No. 1 overall prospect Vladimir Guerrero cut into his playing time.

A 25th-round pick by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2012, he elected to test free agency.
