Top Randal Grichuk News

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Swats first homer

    Grichuk started in right field and went 1-for-3 with a walk and solo home run in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Colorado.

    Grichuk provided what eventually turned out to be the game-winning hit with a second-inning home run, his first of the season. He's started four consecutive games; the first three were against lefties, as expected, before Tuesday's start against a right-hander. Grichuk got the start in place of a resting Lourdes Gurriel.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Plays in field Sunday

    Grichuk started in right field and went 0-for-3 in Sunday's 5-2 loss to Atlanta.

    Grichuk was activated off the injured list Friday and made his season debut Saturday as the designated hitter. Sunday was his first day in the field, and he's expected to be in the lineup whenever the Diamondbacks face a left-hander. He was eventually pinch hit for by lefty-hitting Jake McCarthy against a right-handed reliever in the ninth inning.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Makes season debut

    Grichuk started at designated hitter and went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 9-8 loss to Atlanta.

    Grichuk was activated from the injured list Friday and made his season debut the next day. He singled in a run during Arizona's six-run first inning. The righty-hitter should start most games when the Diamondbacks face a left-hander, as was the case Saturday against Max Fried. Atlanta has another southpaw, Chris Sale, scheduled for Sunday, and Grichuk could make his season debut in the field.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Activated from injured list

    Grichuk (ankle) was activated from the 10-day injured list by the Diamondbacks on Friday.

    Although he is not in Friday's lineup in Atlanta, Grichuk is ready for his Diamondbacks debut following a minimum stay on the IL as he worked his way back from January ankle surgery. Much of his playing time figures to come against lefties, although he could see some starts versus righties while Alek Thomas (hamstring) is out.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Makes second rehab appearance

    Grichuk (ankle) started in center field and went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and an additional run scored in a rehab game for Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

    Grichuk made his second start while on rehab assignment at Reno. After playing five innings Friday, he was on the field for seven innings Sunday. "I spoke to him a short time ago and he said he feels really good," Lovullo told Alex Weiner of Arizona Sports. "He was in the field two nights ago and made plays, did what he was supposed to do. Everything is pushing in a very positive direction." The manager said earlier this spring that Grichuk could have served as the DH on the major-league roster to start the season, but the organization wanted him to get some time in the field while on rehab. That suggests a return at or soon after the 10-day minimum.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Plays five innings in rehab start

    Grichuk (ankle) started in center field and went 1-for-3 with a run scored in Friday's rehab game for Triple-A Reno.

    Grichuk tested out the ankle for the first time, playing five innings in center field and scoring from first base on a double. His right-handed bat could be useful as a regular platoon mate in center field once he's ready to join the major-league club.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Begins rehab in Triple-A

    Grichuk (ankle) began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Reno on Friday, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Grichuk will start in center field in his first game with the Aces, marking the first time he's played in any sort of game since undergoing ankle surgery in January. Assuming he doesn't run into any setbacks in the minors, he should be able to rejoin the D-backs when eligible April 5.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Lands on IL

    The Diamondbacks placed Grichuk (ankle) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    Grichuk didn't appear in any Cactus League games while he was still limited to begin spring training following his January surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle, but he was able to take some at-bats in minor-league games on the back fields during the final week of camp, per MLB.com. He's not expected to be in store for a long stay on the shelf and could even be ready for activation when first eligible April 5 if he's able to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment this weekend.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Will move to injured list

    Manager Torey Lovullo confirmed Wednesday that Grichuk (ankle) will begin the season on the injured list, Alex Weiner of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Lovullo said the goal is to get Grichuk a few extra games in at Triple-A Reno before he makes his Diamondbacks debut, so it's likely he only spends the minimum 10 days on the IL. The 32-year-old outfielder sat out the entire Cactus League schedule while recovering from offseason ankle surgery, but he has resumed taking batting practice and running around the bases.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Could start season on IL

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Monday that the team is giving Grichuk more time to recover from surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle in February, Jesse Friedman of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Louvello didn't commit to an IL stint for Grichuk, but it appears the outfielder will not be available for Opening Day. Grichuk has been participating in live batting practice and ramped up his activity Friday, when he ran bases for the first time since his surgery. If Grichuk opens the season on IL, Jake McCarthy could find his way onto Arizona's Opening Day roster.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Runs bases Friday

    Grichuk (ankle) ran the bases Friday for the first time this spring, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    Grichuk's status for Opening Day has not yet been determined, but time is running short, and the Diamondbacks may opt to place him on the injured list instead of rushing him back. "Based on how he looks right now, everything is going pretty well," Arizona general manager Mike Hazen said. "I don't think it's going to be too long if in fact [the IL] is the direction we have to go." The outfielder has been taking live batting practice, and it sounds like the team's decision-makers believe Grichuk can step into game conditions without much spring activity. Arizona and Cleveland will play two exhibition games Monday and Tuesday, which could give Grichuk plate opportunities to prepare for the regular season. If he does open on the IL, Jake McCarthy would likely nab the final outfield spot.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Opening Day status uncertain

    Manager Torey Lovullo said Tuesday that Grichuk (ankle) is "still progressing," but the team is unsure if Grichuk will be ready to go by Opening Day, Alex Weiner of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Grichuk has been forced to sit out of Cactus League action after undergoing a procedure to remove bone spurs in his right ankle. He resumed taking live batting practice March 8, but Grichuk has yet to make any significant strides toward returning since then. There is still time for Grichuk to get healthy and play in one of Arizona's final spring training games, but it's also possible the veteran outfielder begins the year on the IL and plays a few minor-league rehab games before making his season debut.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Not running bases yet

    Grichuk (ankle) took live batting practice Friday but has not yet been cleared to run the bases, Alex Weiner of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Grichuk is recovering from January surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle. He's ramping things up slowly but surely and the Diamondbacks have not yet ruled him out for Opening Day, but it's going to be close. Once healthy, Grichuk is expected to see regular starts in the outfield against left-handed pitching.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: No baseball work yet

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Tuesday that Grichuk (ankle) has yet to be cleared for baseball activities, Alex Weiner of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    The skipper also said the veteran outfielder has yet to be ruled out for the start of the season, but time is running out if he's going to be fully ramped up by Opening Day. Grichuk joined the Diamondbacks on a one-year contract in mid-February but has been recovering from January surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Won't play early in spring training

    Grichuk had bone spurs removed from his right ankle in January and won't initially play in Cactus League games, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    Grichuk signed a one-year contract with the Diamondbacks on Saturday, but he won't be available for the start of spring training as he recovers from the procedure that he underwent last month. The team hopes he'll be ready to play by Opening Day, but even if he's unavailable to begin the regular season, he isn't expected to have a lengthy absence. Once he's available, Grichuk will likely fill in for Alek Thomas or Corbin Carroll when Arizona faces left-handed pitchers.

  • Diamondbacks' Randal Grichuk: Signs with Arizona

    Grichuk signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Diamondbacks on Saturday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Grichuk's new deal also includes a $6 million mutual option for 2025. Grichuk slashed .267/.321/.459 with 16 homers and 44 RBI in 471 plate appearances between the Rockies and Angels last season. He's been known to find consistent success against southpaws, making it likely he fills in for Alek Thomas or Corbin Carroll on days the Diamondbacks are matched up against a left-handed starter.

  • Angels' Randal Grichuk: Homers in season finale

    Grichuk went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Athletics.

    Grichuk launched a third-inning home run off JP Sears for his 16th of the year. The 31-year-old had hit north of 20 home runs in five consecutive full seasons (he hit 12 in the 2020 shortened season) but has managed to go under that number in back-to-back years. Still, Grichuk tallied at least one hit in 23 of his final 28 games of the year and finishes slashing .267/.321/.459 with 44 RBI, 65 runs and a 29:96 BB:K in 471 plate appearances.
