Neal (shoulder) signed a minor league deal with the Reds on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.
Neal, a 26-year-old outfielder, spent most of 2013 with the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he slashed .325/.391/.411 in 297 plate appearances. He has just 41 career big-league plate appearances to his name, but does have a solid track record in the upper levels of the minors. While Neal could make for a decent fourth or fifth outfielder, his lack of power and speed portends limited upside. He has hit just 28 home runs across all levels since the beginning of the 2010 season.
