|Chris Nelson excited about 'great opportunity' with Reds |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(1/27/14) The Reds announced Monday they signed infielder Chris Nelson to a minor-league deal, which includes an invitation to spring training.
"I think it’s a great opportunity, especially being in the National League," Nelson told MLB.com. "I have a chance to be a utility man, and with the double-switches there could be a chance for playing time. It could be a good fit for me."
|Chris Nelson close to deal with Reds |

(1/27/14) Former Rockies, Yankees and Angels infielder Chris Nelson is close to signing a deal with the Reds, a source told ESPN. Nelson hit .227 with three home runs and 24 RBI in 64 games last season.
|Angels announce decisions prior to non-tender deadline |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/2/13) The Angels opted not to tender contracts to three players Monday, making them free agents. Pitchers Jerome Williams and Tommy Hanson, along with infielder Chris Nelson, will become free agents this offseason.
The Angels did tender contracts to five players, and will have a chance to negotiate deals for them prior to arbitration hearing. They are: infielders Mark Trumbo and David Freese, and pitchers Ernesto Frieri, Kevin Jepsen and Fernando Salas.
|Chris Nelson still out for Halos |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(9/28/13) Angels third baseman Chris Nelson has not been in the lineup since the end of August due to a hamstring strain. He does not seem to have a timetable for his return at this point with just two games left in the season.
Nelson is hitting .227/.273/.327 with three home runs and 24 RBI in 211 at-bats this season for the Angels.
|Chris Nelson remains out of lineup |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/26/13) Angels third baseman Chris Nelson was held out of the starting lineup Thursday night at Texas because of a hamstring strain. He has not played since late August because of the injury and remains hopeful of playing before the season ends. He is hitting .227/.273/.327 with three home runs and 24 RBI in 211 at-bats.
|Chris Nelson got his first chance to hold down a regular job in 2013, and it went so poorly that he probably won't get another one. The long overdue prospect looked like he was ready for it after hitting .345 with an .882 OPS in 53 games down the stretch for the Rockies in 2012, but when he got off to a slow start, he suddenly found himself bouncing from organization to organization, eventually landing with an Angels team that played him only because it had no one else to man third base after trading Alberto Callaspo to the Athletics. With the ability to play both second as well as third, the 28-year-old probably has the inside track on a bench spot heading into 2014, but if he ends up getting regular at-bats for the Angels again, it's because something went wrong. Given his minimal power and speed, you wouldn't want him either way.
