NEW YORK -- Josh Satin has signed a minor-league contract with the Cincinnati Reds.

The 29-year-old Satin had become a minor-league free agent after being outrighted off the 40-man roster on Oct. 31.

Satin made his first Opening Day roster in 2014, but ultimately was supplanted by Eric Campbell as a righty-hitting backup corner infielder. Satin was 3-for-35 at the major league level this season. He has a .243 average (61-for-251) in 116 career games.

A September call-up from Triple-A Las Vegas, Satin finished this year with a fracture in his right hand.

Satin originally was drafted in the sixth round in 2008 out of Cal.
