Santos signed a minor league deal with the Pirates on Friday, the Pittsburgh Tribune reports. The deal includes a spring training invitation.
The 32-year-old Santos spent last season in the Indians' farm system, appearing in 61 games for Triple-A Columbus. In 206 at-bats, Santos slashed .248/.285/.354 with 23 RBI and three home runs. At this point in his career, his upside is very limited and he'll likely serve as organizational depth.
