Free-agent outfielder Kole Calhoun is in agreement with the Arizona Diamondbacks on a two-year, $16 million deal, MLB Network Insider Jon Morosi reported Tuesday.

The contract includes a third-year club option for $9 million, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Calhoun, 32, played 152 games for the Los Angeles Angels in 2019, posting a slash line of .232/.325/.467 and hitting 33 home runs, and posting 74 RBIs. He is hitting .249 for his career with 140 home runs and 451 RBIs.

Back on Nov. 4, the Angels bought out for $1 million of Calhoun’s $14 million option.

Calhoun was drafted by the Angels in the eighth round of the 2010 MLB Draft from Arizona State. He has spent his entire eight-year career with the Angels.
