PHOENIX (AP) -The Arizona Diamondbacks added a pair of familiar names to their roster on Friday.
The team claimed ex-Diamondback Byun-Hyung Kim and former all-star infielder Jeff Cirillo off waivers - Kim from Florida and Cirillo from Minnesota.
Kim, who struck out a career-high 10 against the Rockies on Wednesday, was 6-5 with a 4.63 ERA with the Marlins and Rockies. Florida acquired him from Colorado on May 13 in a trade for reliever Jorge Julio.
n the final two games.
Kim fell out of favor after the team put him in the starting rotation in 2003, and was traded on May 29, 2003, to the Boston Red Sox for Shea Hillenbrand.
The 37-year-old Cirillo left the Milwaukee Brewers, his original team, this winter for a $1.5 million, one-year contract and the prospect of more playing time.
He was bothered this spring by a medial meniscus cartilage tear in his left knee, though, and had trouble finding a comfort zone after spending about a month on the disabled list at the beginning of the season. Cirillo played mostly at third base and designated hitter, but rookie Brian Buscher and the recently activated Rondell White have been receiving the most at-bats at those spots.
Cirillo, a two-time All-Star who has also spent time in his career with the Colorado Rockies, Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres, was batting .261 with nine doubles, two triples, two homers and 21 RBIs in 153 at-bats. Cirillo will join an Arizona team that recently moved into first place in the NL West and play for manager Bob Melvin, whom he played for with the Mariners.
To make room for the newcomers, Arizona moved Randy Johnson from the 60-day disabled list and designated infielder Brian Barden for assignment.
