Yasmani Grandal has a new team, and will officially no longer call Los Angeles home. Instead, Grandal has signed a one-year deal with the Milwaukee Brewers. Ironically, Grandal will face a team he had some struggles against in the 2018 NLCS.

Ken Rosenthal had the report first on twitter.

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports has further details on the financial aspects of the contract. The deal is worth $18.25 million for one year. This of course gives Grandal some flexibility to sign a longer-term deal if he has a solid year in Milwaukee. At the same time – this is short of the four-year pact Grandal was reportedly offered by the New York Mets earlier in the offseason.

Now, Grandal will have the chance at retribution against the Dodgers; the team he has made himself a marquee name with since 2015.

Grandal should be appreciated for what he was for Los Angeles: a very good offensive bat for a backstop. He leaves the Dodgers after posting an 113 OPS+ and 89 homers in 510 career games in a Dodger uniform. Never a charismatic personality or leader, he handled the job quietly and thanklessly.

Now that this news is official – we would like to wish him well and good luck.
