Diamondbacks sign Gregor Blanco

The veteran outfielder signed a minor league deal

MLB: San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers

Chris Cotillo of SBN is reporting that the Diamondbacks have signed Veteran outfielder Gregor Blanco to a minor league deal with a base salary of $1 Million should he reach the majors.

Blanco spent the past five seasons with the Giants. Most recently in 2016 he hit .224/.309/.311 in 274 PAs.

This seems like a move to bolster outfield depth in the minors and in the majors in case of injury or ineffectiveness, but feel free to treat it like he’s gonna take A.J. Pollock’s starting spot.
