Report: Tigers sign Omir Santos to minor league deal

MLB.com's Jason Beck reported via Twitter the Tigers' first move at the 2010 MLB Winter Meetings was to sign catcher Omir Santos to a minor deal.

Santos most recently was with the Mets in 2009, where he had an OPS of .687. In 2010, he had a .522 OPS with Buffalo of the Triple A International League and numbers you don't even want to think about in Double A Eastern League (MILB.com stats). He played in just 27 MILB games last season.

This just goes to show you, kids, if you can catch a baseball thrown 96 mph there will be a job in professional baseball for you. Let's hope he is not necessary at the major league level this year.
