Derek Dietrich signed a minor-league contract with the Texas Rangers on Monday. He has been assigned to their alternate site.
Dietrich is on to his third team already this season, and looks to make the big league team as a bench player. He hit 19 homers in just 306 at-bats last year, but his lack of a hit tool and below-average defense shows his downside.
Derek Dietrich was granted his release from the Cubs on Sunday.
Dietrich was released by the Reds earlier this offseason and now waived by the Cubs Sunday. He will look to latch onto another team during the 2020 season. Dietrich slashed .187/.328/.462 with 19 homers in 113 games for the Reds in 2019.
2B Derek Dietrich announced on his personal Instagram account that he signed with the Cubs Thursday.
Dietrich was released by the Reds during summer camp, but signed with the Cubs on Thursday. The details of the contract are not available. He will give the Cubs an extra bat for the season. Dietrich slashed .187/.328/.462 with 19 homers, 43 RBI and one stolen base across 113 games for the Reds in 2019.
Reds utilityman Derek Dietrich exercised the out in his contract and has been released.
Dietrich was recently reassigned to the team's alternate training site. He'll likely land on his feet with a minor-league contract elsewhere.
The Reds added Derek Dietrich to their 60-man player pool.
Dietrich was not on the team's initial list of players, which was odd. The 30-year-old did hit just .187 last year before signing a minor-league deal with the Reds this past February. Perhaps he'll wind up in the majors at some point this summer, but he isn't a fantasy relevant player right now.
