Reds Re-Sign Jonny Gomes

The Reds officially re-signed outfielder Jonny Gomes to a one-year, Major League deal with a club option for 2011.  John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer broke news of the agreement, and ESPN's Jerry Crasnick tweeted details.

Gomes, 29, hit .267/.338/.541 in 314 plate appearances for the Reds in '09 before being non-tendered.  35% of his plate appearances came against lefties, and his defense was suspect.  Gomes had a hard time finding a job as a free agent, and perhaps the Reds saw that coming.  He will be arbitration-eligible again if the Reds decline his 2011 option.
