Sources: Reds to re-sign Ludwick

Free-agent left fielder Ryan Ludwick appears headed back to Cincinnati.

Ludwick closed in on a new contract with the Reds Friday, according to major-league sources.

The deal is expected to be for two years, but financial terms had not yet been finalized, sources said.

Ludwick, 34, bounced back with the Reds last season, batting .275 with 26 home runs, 80 RBI and an .877 OPS.

The Reds continue to look for a new center fielder, with a trade for Colorado's Dexter Fowler among the possibilities.
