Dodgers: Former LA Outfielder Josh Reddick Heads Out of the Country to Continue Career

The one time big leaguer has been unable to find a big league job.



After miring through and up and down (but mostly down) last few seasons around Major League Baseball, former Dodgers outfielder Josh Reddick found himself needing to travel far to continue his playing career. The 2017 World Series champion announced that he inked a deal with the Perth Heat down under in Australia.

Reddick has bounced around the league in the states since the Houston Astros let him walk as a free agent after the 2020 season. He had stints with the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Mets at the minor league level in 2021 before finding himself forced to take a deal with the Acereros de Monclova of the Mexican League in 2022. However, after struggling at the plate to a .217 average over 12 games, the former Gold Glover was set loose to sign with Perth.

Notably, the outfielder was part of the 2017 Houston Astros team that was caught stealing signs using an elaborate system. He spent 47 games with the Dodgers back in 2016.

Over parts of 13 big league seasons, Reddick has 146 home runs and 575 runs batted in with a .263 average.
