Reds Sign Dioner Navarro

The Reds signed catcher Dioner Navarro to a minor league deal, according to the team's Twitter feed.  He'll earn $800K plus $200K in incentives in the bigs, tweets Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.  Navarro, 28 in February, will provide veteran depth after catching tandem Devin Mesoraco and Ryan Hanigan.  He's represented by MDR Sports Management.

Navarro hit .193/.276/.324 in 202 plate appearances for the Dodgers last year, catching 428 innings.  He was designated for assignment in August.  The Reds' other non-roster invitees include Sean Gallagher, Ron Mahay, Kanekoa Texeira, Clay Zavada, and Corky Miller.
