Report: the Diamondbacks have signed Adam LaRoche

0 Comments

Dejan Kovacevic tweets that the Arizona Diamondbacks have signed first baseman Adam LaRoche to a one-year contract. Heyman tweets that it’s between $4-5 million.

You’ll recall that LaRoche had previously turned down a two-year, $17.5 million offer from the Giants. Add in the facts that (a) San Francisco is a way cooler place to live than Phoenix; and (b) the Giants stand a better shot at competing for the division and, I think we can call LaRoche’s offseason strategy to have been something approaching a total failure.
