Tyler Clippard signed a major-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Monday.
Clippard and the Diamondbacks have come to terms on a contract, but the length of his deal is unknown at this time. He will most likely serve as one of the Diamondbacks top setup men in 2021. Clippard owned a 2.77 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 26:4 K:BB across 26 innings for the Twins in 2020.

Clippard exited Sunday's win early after taking a line drive to the elbow. He managed to avoid a serious injury and could be available to pitch Tuesday. Clippard "had another really good day today," said Twins' manager Rocco Baldelli. The Twins could be cautious with Clippard and rest him one more day. The 35-year-old owns a 1.42 ERA and 0.79 WHIP over 12 2/3 innings.
Tyler Clippard took a comebacker off his elbow on Sunday but the initial imaging came back clean, per Twins manager Rocco Baldelli.
It will be a few days, possibly more, before Clippard can pitch again. But for now, it appears he'll avoid the injured list. The veteran reliever has registered a 1.42 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 13 punch-outs over 12.2 innings.
Twins reliever Tyler Clippard is serving as an opener for the team's matchup against the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.
Clippard will probably only pitch an inning or two before giving way to a bulk reliever. Clippard opened a few games last year, as well. This is good news for owners in leagues that reward for games started but bad news for owners needing a hold or a save to end the week.
Cleveland Indians reliever Tyler Clippard struggled as his team's opener in a 9-7 win on Wednesday. Clippard allowed three runs in 1 1/3 innings of work.
Clippard didn't get the job done but the Cleveland offense lifted him up. He now has a 4.30 ERA, 0.75 WHIP, and 14 strikeouts in 14 2/3 innings of work.
