SARASOTA, Fla. — Infielder Jerry Hairston Jr., whose name appeared in the Mitchell Report, agreed to a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds on Monday.

The report said former New York Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski alleged he sold human growth hormone to Hairston on two or three occasions in 2003 and 2004. Radomski said he had one check from Hairston.

Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky said the team talked to Major League Baseball about Hairston's situation before offering the contract.
