Diamondbacks sign outfielder Kole Calhoun to 2-year contract

PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks announced Monday that they have signed outfielder Kole Calhoun to a two-year contract with a club option for 2022.

The 32-year-old Calhoun, who lives in nearby Tempe, Arizona, has played eight major league seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, batting .249 in his career with 140 homers. In 2019, he hit .232 with a career-high 33 homers while playing mostly right field.

He is a four-time Gold Glove finalist and won the award in 2015.

Calhoun could replace Adam Jones, who was the team's primary right fielder last season but is now a free agent. The D-backs have been active with free agents during the offseason, signing veteran pitcher Madison Bumgarner earlier this month.
