Murphy signed a minor league contract with the Reds on Friday. He was assigned to Triple-A Louisville.
The Rangers cut Murphy loose last Thursday after he hit just .196/.268/.330 in 45 games with the big club. While Murphy did post a .849 OPS in 46 games with the Cubs last season, it seems unlikely he'll be anything more than organization infield depth with the Reds, who just lost Brandon Phillips (thumb) for an extended period.
