Cody Decker Re-signs with Arizona Diamondbacks and Assigned to Reno
Cody Decker, who finished his first season in the Arizona Diamondbacks' organization last month, will spend 2019 back in Reno.
Last season, the 31-year old hit .268 with 9 home runs and 28 RBI's in 63 games. Decker did most of his damage in April and May and only received 29 at bats over the final three months of the season. He is just three home runs shy of 200 for his career but he still trails Hector Espino, who holds the all-time Minor League record with 484 career round-trippers.
Decker played in El Paso in 2014 and 2015 and was a huge fan favorite, swatting 48 home runs for the Chihuahuas and helping to lead them to their first ever postseason. He received a late season call-up to the San Diego Padres in 2015 and recorded his first MLB RBI with a SAC fly against the Los Angeles Dodgers. 2019 will be his 11th season in professional baseball.
