Bryan Anderson signs with the Reds on minor league deal

Add one more to the burgeoning list of players the Reds have signed to minor league deals during this strange offseason full of minuscule moves.

According to Matt Eddy of Baseball America, 27-year-old catcher Bryan Anderson is the newest member of the organization. Once a highly regarded prospect in the Cardinals system, Anderson spent the 2013 season at Triple-A Charlotte, where he slashed .224/.302/.400 in 235 plate appearances.

For his minor league career as a whole, which spans nine seasons and exactly 2,900 plate appearances, the California native is a .278/.346/.405 batter, which is not bad at all.

Anderson's deal does not include an invite to major league spring training. However, he will presumably have a shot to latch onto the Double-A or Triple-A roster if he wishes.
