CINCINNATI (AP) _ Third baseman Aaron Boone and outfielder Juan Encarnacion agreed to one-year contracts Friday with the Cincinnati Reds, leaving just pitcher Scott Williamson eligible for arbitration.
Boone was limited to 103 games last season because of injuries but hit a career-high .294 with 14 home runs and 62 RBIs.
Encarnacion hit .242 with 12 home runs and 52 RBIs in 120 games for Detroit. He came to the Reds in a trade for Dmitri Young at baseball's winter meetings.
