Former Marshall pitcher Aaron Blair officially became a professional Saturday when he signed his contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Blair, 21, signed a deal worth $1.435 million, according to Baseball America. The Diamondbacks selected Blair with the 36th overall pick of the first-year player draft on June 6.

The 6-foot-5, 225-pound right-hander from Las Vegas went 5-5 with a 2.85 earned run average and was an All-Conference USA first-team selection this spring.

Arizona has now signed all but one of its 10 draft selections.
