Holaday signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Monday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports. Holaday has been a depth piece for most of his career, and that's probably what he'll be this season, as he's likely behind Carson Kelly, Stephen Vogt and Daulton Varsho in the Diamondbacks' catcher depth chart. Holaday has hit just .238/.283/.333 over his nine-year career and hit a miserable .161/.212/.194 in limited action for the Orioles last season.
Holaday is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays. The clear third backstop on the roster behind Pedro Severino and Chance Sisco, Holaday hasn't seen much action since being promoted to the big club Aug. 1. He's appeared in 11 games this month while going 4-for-16 with five runs and two RBI.
Holaday's contract was selected by Baltimore on Saturday. Holaday hit a solid .278/.344/.435 in 43 games for the Marlins last season, though he's a career .241/.287/.340 hitter over his eight-year big-league career. He doesn't have a clear path to playing time in Baltimore, as he'll be behind Pedro Severino and Chance Sisco on the depth chart.
Holaday will be a part of the Orioles' 60-man player pool this season. He is not on the 40-man roster and is fourth on the organizational depth chart at catcher behind Pedro Severino, Chance Sisco and Austin Wynns.
Holaday signed a minor-league deal with the Orioles on Monday, Craig Mish of FNTSY Sports Radio reports. The 32-year-old has played parts of eight seasons in the big leagues but has never appeared in more than 62 games. In 43 contests for the Marlins last season, he hit .278/.344/.435.
