FOX Sports is reporting the Reds will hire former MLB All-Star Jay Bell as the team's new bench coach.
Bell, who played 18 seasons in the big leagues, last worked as the Pittsburgh Pirates hitting coach. Bell also served as bench coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2005-06.
This move has not been confirmed by the Reds, but would mean the club is replacing current bench coach Chris Speier.
This story was first reported by Ken Rosenthal with FOX Sports.
