The Reds have agreed to a two-year contract with catcher Brayan Pena, according to Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes. Rojas reports the deal is for a minimum $1.25 million.

Pena, 32, likely will be the Reds' backup catcher, the role he had last season for the Tigers. He is a lifetime .258 hitter with 18 home runs and 120 RBIs and has never played more than 72 games in a season in stops with the Braves, Royals and Tigers.

His addition could free up Ryan Hanigan for a trade, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Hanigan is arbitration-eligible and hit a paltry .198 with two home runs and 21 RBIs in 2013.
