Choo, Reds agree on 1-year, $7.35M contract

CINCINNATI - Korean outfielder Choo Shin-soo and the Reds have agreed on a one-year contract for $7,375,000, leaving two Cincinnati players in salary arbitration.

Choo made $4.9 million last season with Cleveland, which traded him to the Reds as part of a three-team deal in December. The Reds plan to start him in center field in place of Drew Stubbs - who went to the Indians - and bat him leadoff.

He had asked for $8 million in arbitration, and the Reds had offered $6.75 million. Choo filed for the highest figure among the six Reds in arbitration.

Cincinnati has discussed multi-year deals with starters Mat Latos and Homer Bailey, its last two cases after Monday’s settlement. Bailey has asked for $5.8 million and has been offered $4.75 million. Latos has asked for $4.7 million and has been offered $4.15 million. AP
