With a need in the outfield, the Arizona Diamondbacks signed veteran outfielder Josh Reddick to a minor league deal Monday, the Arizona Republic reported.

If he makes the major league roster, the 34-year-old Reddick will earn $750,000, according to the report.

The Diamondbacks placed center fielder Ketel Marte on the injured list last week with a right hamstring strain.

Reddick's four-year deal with the Houston Astros expired at the end of last season and he did not receive much attention in free agency during the offseason.

He batted .245 with four home runs and 23 RBIs in 56 games last season. He helped the Astros win the 2017 season in the first year of his deal with the club.

In 12 seasons with the Boston Red Sox (2009-11), Oakland Athletics (2012-16), Los Angeles Dodgers (2016) and Astros, Reddick batted .263 with 144 home runs and 554 RBIs in 1,251 games. He won a Gold Glove with the A's in 2012.
