Associated Press The Cincinnati Reds and free-agent infielder Jack Hannahan finalized a $4 million, two-year contract on Thursday, giving the team added depth at third base. The 32-year old, reunited with former Indians teammate Shin-Soo Choo, hit .244 for the Indians last season with 16 doubles, four homers and 29 RBI in 105 games. His playing time was limited by a minor back injury. “It’s a chance to win,” Hannahan said during a news conference at Great American Ball Park. “I’ll do whatever they ask me to do.” Hannahan gets $1 million in each of the next two seasons, and the Reds have a $4 million option for 2015 with a $2 million buyout. He became a free agent when the Indians failed to offer him a 2013 contract by the Nov. 30 deadline. In six big-league seasons with Detroit, Oakland, Seattle and the Indians, Hannahan made 451 appearances at third base, 39 at first, nine at shortstop and one at second.
