Former Tigers utility infielder Ramon Santiago has signed a minor league deal with the Reds, according to reports.
Santiago, 34, could earn up to $1.1 million if he makes the major league team, Cincinnati.com reported.
Santiago was not pursued in the offseason after his contract with the Tigers expired. He appeared in 80 games in 2013, hitting .224 with 46 hits and 27 runs.
Santiago signed with the Tigers as an amateur free agent in 1998 out of the Dominican Republic. He was traded to the Mariners in 2004 for shortstop Carlos Guillen.
The Tigers reacquired Santiago in 2006, signing him as a free agent after he was released by the Mariners.
