ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Reds have discussed a multi-year deal with Chris Heisey, but he's likely to agree to a one-year pact in order to avoid arbitration.

Heisey is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter as a Super 2 player. The 28-year-old has batted .259/.315/.438 with 33 homers over three seasons with the Reds and is slated for backup duty in the outfield again in 2013.
