Reds add Hermida to outfield mix

The Reds added depth in the outfield on Tuesday, signing outfielder Jeremy Hermida to a Minor League contract that includes an invitation to Spring Training.

Cincinnati has been looking for a left-handed-hitting outfielder to come off the bench, and Hermida could fit that bill if he were to make the club.

“We liked him a lot in the past, and we’re giving him an opportunity to see what he can do to make the club,” Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said. “Maybe playing in our ballpark will make a difference for him. There’s not a lot of risk and a chance for good upside.”
