The 31-year-old Moeller played in 29 games for Milwaukee last season, hitting .184 with two homers and five RBIs before being sent to the minors. He also has played for Minnesota and Arizona during his seven-year career.

The Reds also have catchers David Ross and Javier Valentin on their 40-man roster. Ross was the primary catcher last season, and Valentin was their top pinch-hitter.

Cincinnati cleared a logjam at the position by trading Jason LaRue to Kansas City last week for a player to be named.
