The Tigers signed reliever Juan Rincon to a minor-league contract with an invitation to Spring Training on Tuesday.

"He's been a solid major-league pitcher most of his career," said Tigers' president/GM Dave Dombrowski. "Plus, (new pitching coach) Rick Knapp knows him and likes him. He's someone we feel is worth looking at."
