Josh Reddick spent the past four years with the Houston Astros, but he announced that he is signing a deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Josh Reddick Contract

It’s a minor league contract that will Reddick him $750K if he reaches the majors, and he will report to the Diamondbacks alternate training site. Reddick has a relationship with Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen and assistant general manager Amiel Sawdaye dating back to his time with the Red Sox.

Reddick just turned 34 years old, and he’s been roughly a league-average hitter over his past three seasons. He’s posted a wRC+ between 94 and 99 in each of his past three seasons, and he’s the rare left-handed batter that has actually fared better against left-handed pitching. He’s posted better numbers against southpaws than right-handers in each of the past three seasons, making it tough for him to operate in a platoon situation. Still, the Diamondbacks could use some help in the outfield, particularly if Ketel Marte is forced to miss more time than expected.

The Diamondbacks will take on the Oakland Athletics on Monday, and they’re listed as +114 home underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook.
