Ramon Santiago signs with the Blue Jays

16 Comments

Veteran utility infielder Ramon Santiago has signed a minor-league deal with the Blue Jays.

Santiago spent last season with the Reds, hitting .246 with a .667 OPS in 75 games, and was previously the Tigers’ utility man (and occasional regular) for most of the past decade.

At age 35 he’s strictly a bench player and may have to prove that he still has enough range to cover shortstop defensively to snag a job. He’ll compete for a roster spot on a spring training invite.
