Baker getting new deal from Reds

Dusty Baker has agreed to return to the Reds on a two-year deal, according to sources. The deal won't be announced until after the season, as the Reds and Baker don't want it to distracting them in their postseason.

It is believed the new deal is worth close to $8 million. The Dayton Daily News first reported Baker was going back to Cincinnati.

Baker is in his third year with the Reds and has guided them to their first playoff appearance in 15 years this season. The Reds are the third team Baker has led to the postseason, having previously won division titles with the Giants and Cubs.
