2 Comments

Veteran utility man Ramon Santiago has signed a minor-league deal with the Reds and Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that he’d get $1.1 million in upfront money for making the Opening Day roster via spring training invitation.

Santiago has spent the past eight years with the Tigers, including several seasons as a productive part-timer, but he hasn’t topped a .700 OPS since 2009 and is now 34 years old.
