Cincinnati Reds Sign Veteran Outfielder

The Cincinnati Reds add another bat.

The Reds have signed outfielder Nick Martini to a minor-league contract.

Martini is the second outfielder signed by the Reds in the last few days who has a shot at making the Reds' Opening Day roster this spring.

Martini spent last season with the NC Dinos of the Korea Baseball Organization. 

The thirty-two-year-old spent the 2021 season with the Chicago Cubs, getting into just 25 games, however, with a .270 batting average, four RBIs and four runs scored. 

For his major-league career, Martini holds a .270/.369/.369 triple-slash line, with two home runs, 30 RBIs and 38 runs scored over 112 games played. He's spent time with the Oakland Athletics, San Diego Padres and the Cubs.

He is a former seventh-round pick by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2011 MLB Draft.

He'll look to make the Reds' Opening Day roster as a reserve outfielder.
