The Reds tweeted on their official account that OF Chris Heisey and RHP Alfredo Simon have both agreed to one-year deals with the club for 2013. By doing so, they avoid having to go to arbitration, leaving Homer Bailey, Mat Latos, Mike Leake, and Shin-Soo Choo as the players left with whom the Reds have not yet come to terms.
Heisey signed for one year at $1.325 million, according to Mark Sheldon on Twitter. The terms of Simon's contract were not immediately available.
Logan Ondrusek was the other player who was arbitration eligible, but he signed a two-year deal on January 17th.
