The Cincinnati Reds signed veteran utility player Josh Harrison to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training, Harrison's agency MSM Sports announced Monday.

Harrison is the latest veteran addition by the Reds' front office, joining Jeimer Candelario, Frankie Montas, Nick Martinez, Emilio Pagán, and Brent Suter.

The 36-year-old should provide Reds manager David Bell with defensive versatility and add an experienced clubhouse presence to a young Cincinnati team.

Harrison appeared at five different positions - including pitcher - for the Philadelphia Phillies last season and has played every position except catcher throughout his career.

The two-time All-Star's best campaigns came with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2014 and 2017.
