Cody Brickhouse enters his first season with the Grizzlies and his fifth in professional baseball in 2019.
Brickhouse, 22, was chosen by the San Francisco Giants in the 15th round of the 2015 MLB Draft out of Sarasota (Fla.) High School. As a result of moving into pro ball straight out of high school, Brickhouse is both the youngest and the seventh-most experienced Grizzlie on the opening day roster.
Over four years spent with the Arizona League Giants, Brickhouse appeared in 58 professional games. Offensively, he improved year-over-year, ultimately hitting .279 with a .417 on-base percentage and .785 OPS in 2018.
In addition to catching, he’s also played six career games at third base. Last season, in which he played 22 games behind the plate, he made only one error in 162 total chances (a .994 fielding percentage).
