Matthews opting out of Reds deal

Gary Matthews Jr. will opt out of his minor-league deal with the Reds,'s Mark Sheldon reports. Matthews won't sign a minor-league contract for another team, just a major-league one, his agent Scott Leventhal told Sheldon.

Reds general manager Walt Jocketty told Matthews on Friday that the team didn't have any big-league openings in the outfield.

"He has nothing left to prove," Leventhal said. "He's a 10-year veteran that spent the last 30 days in Louisville and putting up good numbers."

Matthews was still playing for the Triple-A Louisville Bats in Friday's game at Gwinnett. He can opt out of his contract tomorrow.

Matthews entered the game hitting .313/.359/.490 with three homers and six RBI in 26 games with the Bats. In 36 games for the Mets earlier this season, Matthews hit .190/.266/.241 with an RBI in 58 at-bats. He was released by the Mets on June 15 and signed with the Reds on June 24.
