    Reds sign Nate Samson

    Former Chicago Cubs minor leaguer Nate Samson has signed a minor league deal with the Cincinnati Reds, according to Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors:
    Nate Samson signed a minor league deal with the Reds, MLBTR's Tim Dierkes has learned.
    The Cubs selected Samson in the 34th round of the 2006 MLB Draft out of Forest High School in Ocala, Florida. He started his professional career as a shortstop but has since moved all over the diamond.
    Last season Samson hit .273/.320/.346 with 13 doubles, two home runs and four stolen bases in five attempts over 260 at-bats between the Cubs’ Double- and Triple-A clubs. The 25-year-old manned first, second and third base, right and left field and acted as the team’s designated hitter last season.
    Over seven years in the minors, Samson has hit .264/.331/.330. In parts of four seasons at the Triple-A level he owns a line of .258/.309/.344.

    So why do we have a thread over here for a minor league signing? I thought the off-season transaction thread was for these sort of things.

    And to think a few years ago we would have thought he might be a BP signing.
