The Cincinnati Reds have agreed to a two-year deal with versatile Skip Schumaker, according to reports.
Schumaker, who will be 34 next season, played second base and all three outfield spots last season for the Dodgers. He even pitched in two games.
Schumaker played in 125 games for the Dodgers, hitting .263. In parts of nine seasons, the first eight in St. Louis, Schumaker is a .285 hitter, with the majority of his starts (416) coming at second, but with more games played in the outfield (463).
Reds general manager Walt Jocketty drafted Schumaker in the fifth round of the 2001 draft when he was the GM of the Cardinals. Importantly perhaps, Schumaker can play center field, a spot vacated by free agent Shin-Soo Choo.
