The Reds have signed outfielder Brennan Boesch to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training.

Boesch is a versatile OF with some solid pop yet throughout his career has shown some horrid inconsistency. Hopefully he will find the holes in his swing in Triple-A and eventually correct them en route to the Reds big league ball club.

Ivan De Jesus signed a minor league contract with the Reds.

De Jesus hasn't sniffed the major leagues in the past two seasons and he's nothing more than a minor league player at this point in his career. Do not bother drafting him dynasty leagues this season.

Reds signed 1B Josh Satin.

Satin is back-up material at best. He's got a decent eye for a walk, but he still strikes out too much and his power is mid-level at best. He'll serve as corner infield depth for the Reds, but his fantasy value is minimal at best.

The Reds are reportedly discussing trades for Jay Bruce.

Bruce failed to reach 20 home runs last season, the first time in his seven year career. If Bruce is traded he will almost certainly wind up in a worse ballpark for hitters, though that could be mitigated if he is traded to a team with a good lineup where he would have more RBI opportunities.

Reds added Kyle Waldrop and Amir Garrett to the 40-man roster.

The Reds are shoring up their 40-man roster. Neither Waldrop nor Garrett are likely to see much time with the big league club next year, but these moves all them to be protected in the Rule 5 Draft.

Homer Bailey (flexor mass tendon) will begin throwing in December.

Bailey was having a fine season before injuring his flexor mass tendon later in the season. Bailey needs to do all he can to come back healthy for the Reds who might be understaffed at the starting pitching spot if they aren't able to come to terms with ace Johnny Cueto.

Reds release former Cubs pitcher Carlos Marmol.

Marmol was brought in on a minor league deal with Cincinnati in May but he left Triple-A Louisville for his homeland of the Dominican Republic a few weeks later without permission. It's not clear if the 32-year-old right-hander plans to pitch in 2015.

Joey Votto appears to be progressing in the right direction after missing most of the 2014 season with a distal strain of the quadriceps near his left knee. "Joey is doing great. We're getting good reports," Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said.

Since inking a mega 10 year $225 million contract extension with the Reds, Votto has been a bit of a disappointment in Cincinnati. It is clear that he still has a knack for getting on base, boasting a career .417 OBP, but his dip in power and recent run ins with injuries has been the most concerning trait of the first basemen. Its safe to say that Votto has a lot to prove going into the 2015 season.

Reds' GM Walt Jocketty confirmed that Norichika Aoki and Michael Morse are on the team's target list of free agents.

Left field continues to be an issue for the Reds and the patch-job they tried doing last season just never took. Morse and Aoki would both fit the bill, though Aoki has always been in center or right. Still, he's a solid defender capable of handling the job and could prove to be a solid No. 2 hitter in the lineup. Morse isn't as strong defensively, but his power makes him a much more attractive option considering the fact that Joey Votto doesn't swing as big a stick as he once did. Look for the Reds to be aggressive in their pursuit as the free agent crop isn't filled with many bargains.

The Reds will look to make some moves after a down year, and Morse and Aoki seem like good fits. Aoki, who batted .285 with 63 runs,43 RBI's, and 17 stolen bases, is a decent fielder and can play all outfield positions. He'd be a nice upgrade over Skip Schumaker in left. Morse, who would be best suited as a DH, would likely spend time in left field if he was signed by the Reds, and provided good power at the dish, with 16 home runs and 61 RBI's while batting .279 , though he isn't very good at fielding. Morse doesn't seem like a great fit, as left field would be the only spot to put him, and he's a very poor fielder, making Aoki a more likely free agent addition.
