(Redirected from Joaquin Arias)
- Bats Right, Throws Right
- Height 6' 1", Weight 160 lb.
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.
