Brewers Sign Jeremy Reed

The Brewers announced that they signed Jeremy Reed to a minor league deal with an invitation to Spring Training.

The 29-year-old appeared in 14 games for the Blue Jays last year, but spent most of the season at Triple-A. He hit .279/.342/.412 in 358 plate appearances for Blue Jays and White Sox affiliates last year. The center fielder is no stranger to the major leagues, though. He has appeared in at least 13 games every season since 2004, when he broke in with the Mariners.

Reed will compete with outfielders Chris Dickerson, Brandon Boggs, Caleb Gindl and Logan Schafer for a backup outfielder's job this spring.
