CINCINNATI, Aug. 9 (UPI) -- The Cincinnati Reds Monday acquired veteran outfielder Jim Edmonds from the Milwaukee Brewers for outfielder Chris Dickerson.

Edmonds comes to the Reds batting .286 with eight home runs and 20 RBI in 73 games this season.

The 40-year-old is marking a return to the game after sitting out the entire 2009 season, originally signing a minor league deal with Milwaukee in January and then making the Brewers' roster out of spring training.

Edmonds is a .285 career hitter with 390 homers and 1,196 RBI collected over an 18-season career with the Los Angeles Angels, St. Louis, San Diego, Chicago Cubs and Brewers.

Dickerson was placed on the disabled list after hitting .205 in 44 at-bats this season with the Reds.

He broke a bone in his right hand in April and last month began a rehabilitation assignment at Class AAA Louisville, where he hit .442 with three homers and seven RBI in 13 games.
