The San Diego Padres and journeyman catcher Wil Nieves have reportedly agreed to a one-year minor league deal worth according to Corey Brock of MLB.com.
Nieves backed up for Carlos Ruiz last year with the Philadelphia Phillies. Nieves hit .254/.270/.344 (71 OPS+) with 7 RBI and 1 home run.
The 37 year-old Puerto Rican will either play in the minors or compete for the backup catching job.
Over his 11-year career with the Padres, Yankees, Brewers, Rockies, Diamondbacks and Phillies, Nieves has hit .243/.281/.317 (61 OPS+) with 9 home runs and 110 RBI.
