Padres reserve Mark Kotsay is drawing interest from the Reds, according to's Jon Morosi. 

Kotsay hasn't played much this season, accumulating just 81 plate appearances, but teams are interested in his ability off the bench and his leadership.

The 36-year-old has hit .292/.370/.375 while playing first base, and both corner spots in the outfield. Kotsay earns $1.25 million this season, and will be a free agent at the end of the year. 

Outside of Joey Votto and Jay Bruce, the Reds don't have another left-handed bat on their team. Kotsay could be a valuable asset against a right-handed reliever late in games.
