Biographical information[edit]

Joaquin Arias was signed out of the Dominican Republic by scouts Victor Mata, Carlos Rios, and Freddy Tiburcio in July 2001. He made his pro debut with the GCL Yankees the next summer.

The main claim to fame of Arias is that he was the player to be named later in the 2004 deal that sent mega-star Alex Rodriguez from the Texas Rangers to the New York Yankees in return for Alfonso Soriano.

He had a career game on August 22, 2012, when he led the San Francisco Giants to an 8-4 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers, completing a three-game sweep at Dodger Stadium; he drove in 5 runs that day with a 1st-inning homer off Chris Capuano and a pair of run-scoring doubles later in the game.
