Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Brewers and catcher Yasmani Grandalhave agreed on a one-year deal, pending a physical. Per Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports, Grandal will earn a salary of $18.25 million.
Grandal, 30, rejected the Dodgers’ $17.9 million qualifying offer in November. The Dodgers will receive a compensatory draft pick after Competitive Balance Round B. The Brewers will give up their third-highest selection in this year’s upcoming draft.
This past season, Grandal hit .241/.349/.466 with 24 home runs and 68 RBI in 518 plate appearances. He had a forgettable postseason, however, playing subpar defense with a .139 average across 34 trips to the plate.
