Schumaker has Reds deal

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is reporting that the Reds and free agent IF/OF Skip Schumaker have agreed on a two-year contract, pending a physical. I am working to confirm that myself.

Schumaker, 33, played for the Dodgers last season and batted .263/.332/.322 in 125 games. From 2005-12, he played for the Cardinals. He would be reunited with his old Cardinals GM, Walt Jocketty, in Cincinnati.

A left-handed hitter, Schumaker is a career .300 hitter with a .357 on-base percentage against right-handed pitching and a .211 hitter with a .280 OBP vs. lefties. Defensively, he can play second base and all three outfield spots.
