Arizona Diamondbacks Sign Veteran Randal Grichuk to Expand Outfield Depth
Outfielder Randal Grichuk, a longtime member of the St. Louis Cardinals and Toronto Blue Jays, has found his new team. He inked a contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday.
According to a report by ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Saturday morning, the outfielder Randal Grichuk and the Arizona Diamondbacks have reached an agreement.

In 2024, Grichuk will receive $1.5 million from his contract in addition to performance bonuses. According to Passan, there is a $6 million mutual option between the parties for 2025 in addition to a $500K buyout.

With the Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Angels in 2023, the 32-year-old journeyman batted.267 in 118 games with 16 home runs, 44 RBI, a.779 OPS, and 1.2 WAR.

After making his Major League Baseball debut in 2014, Grichuk played with the St. Louis Cardinals for his first four years in the major leagues. Grichuk spent the next four seasons in Canada after being traded to the Toronto Blue Jays.

In the end, the Blue Jays dealt Grichuk as well, sending him to the Rockies ahead of the 2022 campaign. Midway through 2023, Colorado traded Grichuk to the Angels.

Grichuk has played 1,094 games since joining the major leagues on a full-time basis in 2015. He is only surpassed in games played by Mookie Betts and Christian Yelich among all outfielders. Even if his output hasn’t been as high as that of those previous MVPs, Grichuk has still finished his career with 990 hits, 191 home runs, 556 RBI, and a 12.3 WAR.

Throughout his career, Grichuk has averaged 27 home runs, 79 RBI, and 1.7 WAR in 162 games when hitting.249 with an OPS of.761.
