The Reds have signed outfielder Gary Matthews Jr. to a minor league deal, according to Yahoo! Sports. Matthews hit .190 with no home runs in 58 at-bats for the Mets this season, and showed obvious signs of decline.
It is possible a change of scenery will benefit the outfielder, but he is likely nearing the end in his career.
