Reds Close To Signing Hermida

The Reds are close to signing outfielder Jeremy Hermida to a minor league deal, a baseball source told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com.  Sheldon cautions that the deal has not been finalized and the club has yet to make a formal announcement.

It's no secret that the Reds have been looking for a left-handed hitting outfielder to come off of the bench and Hermida could fit the bill, provided that he proves himself in Spring Training.  The former first-round pick had a down year in 2010 but has a respectable career slash line of .259/.335/.417 across six big league seasons.
