Chris Nelson granted his release by Reds
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Fine spring numbers did not translate into success for veteran third baseman Chris Nelson. He has opted out of his contract with the Reds and asked for his release.

Nelson batted .317 with three doubles, one home run and seven RBI in 41 at-bats. He boasted a .463 slugging percentage.

The 28 year old peaked with Colorado in 2012, batting .301, but slumped badly last season and will now try to hook on with another organization.
