Ramon Santiago, former Detroit Tigers infielder and utility man, signed a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds, the team announced Wednesday. Santiago spent eight years with the Tigers playing shortstop, second base and third base, as well as his main position of infielder.
The 34-year-old has been invited to spring training with the Reds, and it has been reported that if he makes the Opening Day roster, the deal could be worth $1.1 million up front.
Santiago hit .224 with one homer and 14 RBIs in 80 games last season with the Tigers and has a career average of .243 at bat.
