CINCINNATI (AP) — Infielder Ramon Santiago has agreed to a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds after 12 seasons with the Detroit Tigers.

The 34-year-old hit .224 with one homer and 14 RBIs in 80 games last season. Santiago started 30 games at second base, seven at third and 19 at shortstop.

Santiago is a career .243 hitter with 28 homers and 197 RBIs.

Cincinnati, which announced the agreement Wednesday, invited Santiago to major league spring training camp next month.
