CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians have signed free agent catcher Omir Santos to a minor league contract.

The 31-year-old Santos split last season with Detroit and Colorado. He batted a combined .310 with two homers and 30 RBIs in 61 games between AAA Toledo and AAA Colorado Springs.

Santos, who has played in 121 major league games since 2008, was called up by the Tigers last May and played in three games.

He appeared in 96 games for the New York Mets in 2009, batting .260 with seven homers and 40 RBIs. Santos was drafted by the Yankees in 2001.

Santos will be 1 of 6 catchers in Cleveland's training camp at Goodyear, Ariz.
