Ludwick signs 2-year, $15 million deal with Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) - Left fielder Ryan Ludwick has signed a 2-year, $15 million deal to stay with the Cincinnati Reds.

He agreed to the deal over the weekend. It includes a mutual option for the 2015 season.

The 34-year-old outfielder batted .275 with 26 homers and 80 RBIs in 125 games last season. He started 107 games in left field. When first baseman Joey Votto got hurt at midseason, Ludwick emerged as 1 of the team's most consistent run producers, helping the Reds win the NL Central for the second time in three years.

Ludwick came to Cincinnati on a 1-year, $2 million deal for 2012 that included a mutual option for 2013 at $5 million. He took a $500,000 buyout instead, interested in seeing what other teams would offer.
