There is a good chance that if you’ve found this page then you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.
That also means that today’s grid has asked for players that have played for both the Arizona Diamondbacks and Texas Rangers.
And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?
Well, good news, you’re in the right place.
I’ve done some research and have found a player who played on both the Diamondbacks and Rangers.
Max Scherzer, known for his distinctive different-colored eyes, has been a force to reckon with in baseball since he started in 2008. He’s played for several teams, including the Diamondbacks, Tigers, Nationals, Dodgers and Mets.
Scherzer’s a three-time Cy Young Award winner and played a crucial role in the Nationals’ World Series win in 2019.
Scherzer is still active (as of 2023) and has over 3,000 strikeouts with a career-high of 300 in 2018 with the Nationals. Despite moving around a bit, Max has consistently been a top-tier pitcher in the majors.
Vicente Padilla, who played from 1999 to 2012, spent his career with several teams, including the Phillies, Rangers, Dodgers, Diamondbacks and Red Sox.
Known for his slider and unpredictable temperament, Padilla amassed over 100 wins and 1,000 strikeouts over his career. He had several strong seasons, particularly in 2002 when he won 14 games with the Phillies and earned his only All-Star appearance.
Royce Clayton, an infielder primarily known for his time at shortstop, had a 17-year career in Major League Baseball from 1991 to 2007. Starting with the San Francisco Giants, Clayton played for a total of 11 teams including the St. Louis Cardinals, Texas Rangers, and Chicago White Sox.
Clayton earned his lone All-Star appearance with the Cardinals in 1997. However, Clayton’s best offensive year arguably came in 1999 with the Texas Rangers when he hit .288 with 14 home runs and 75 RBIs.
His career ended with over 1900 hits, 110 home runs, 723 RBIs, and a .258 batting average.
