Hector Rondonis heading to the Grand Canyon State…
The 31-year-old Venezuelan professional baseball relief pitcher has reportedly agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to ESPN.
Rondon would get a $2.5 million salary next season and would include a team option for 2021 with a $500,000 buyout.
Rondon, a right-hander, is a seven-year veteran who helped the Chicago Cubs win the World Seriesin 2016. He pitched last season for the Houston Astros and had a 3.71 ERA over 62 appearances, including one start.
Rondon has 92 saves and could be a candidate to close games for the D-backs, though Archie Bradley returns after handling the closer role for much of the second half of last season.
The Arizona Republic first reported Rondon’s signing.
