It certainly didn't take Brayan Pena a long time to find a new home.

The Cincinnati Reds have reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the former Tigers backup catcher, who wasted little time on the free-agent market.

Pena, 31, is expected to undergo a physical on Tuesday in Cincinnati and will reportedly earn $1.25 million in 2014. ESPNDeportes.com first reported the acquisition.

Pena, who signed a one-year deal with Detroit this past season, hit .297 with four home runs in 71 games while serving as the backup to catcher Alex Avila.

A career .258 hitter, Pena has also played for the Kansas City Royals and Atlanta Braves. He is expected to be the Reds' backup catcher.

Pena, who is coming off a career season, expressed interest in re-signing with Detroit immediately after the Tigers' loss in Game 6 of the AL Championship Series.

"I wish I'll get the opportunity to come back here because I really love it here," Pena said. "Hopefully, things can work out, but it's not up to me. It's something I can't control.

"I'm very happy being here. If they gave me the opportunity to come back, it would be a no-brainer for me."

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski confirmed Sunday that Pena's agent, Paul Kinzler, reached out to the Tigers, but was told the team intended to go in a different direction.

"I was informed that I will not be returning to the Tigers," Pena tweeted last month. "I want to thanks the fans, the organization and my teammates for the opportunity."
