Reds agree to contract with Choo

Posted: Updated:

The day before the official start of spring training, the Reds announce they've reached a one-year contract with new outfielder Shin-Soo Choo.

The deal means Choo, expected to start the season as the team's centerfielder, and the Reds avoid arbitration.

That leaves pitchers Mat Latos and Homer Bailey as the only arbitration eligible players left on the roster.

The Reds also announce they've signed pitcher Clay Hensley to a minor league contract with an invitation to major league camp.
