Report: Tigers sign Omir Santos to minor league deal'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 ( 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.
