PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks have signed catcher Caleb Joseph to a one-year contract and placed right-hander Taijuan Walker on the 60-day injured list.

Terms of Joseph’s deal announced on Wednesday were not disclosed.

The 32-year-old Joseph played five seasons with Baltimore and is ninth among all active catchers with a caught-stealing percentage of 29.4. He threw out 32.2 percent of attempted base stealers last season and tied for the major league lead with 11 double plays.

Joseph is a career .224 hitter with 31 homers and 122 RBIs.

Walker is recovering from Tommy John surgery after tearing his right ulnar collateral ligament last April against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
