The Diamondbacks have a deal with free-agent outfielder Jason Kubel, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com Monday morning.
The deal is complete, pending a physical. Kubel will get $15 million for two years, with an option for a third year. The Diamondbacks plan for Kubel to be their everyday left fielder, leaving Gerardo Parra to be a fourth outfielder (or to trade for help elsewhere).
Kubel hit .273 with a .332 on-base percentage and 12 home runs in 99 games for the Twins in 2011.
The Kubel deal was first reported on Twitter by Tom Krasovic (@tomkrasovic).
