Mariners Sign Carlos Guillen
Infielder Carlos Guillen, who began his major-league career with the Mariners in 1998, has signed a minor-league deal with Seattle that includes an invitation to spring training.
The Mariners have Chone Figgins and Kyle Seager in the utility role already don't they?
The only thing I can see Guillen doing is bringing in some more power. (Much needed)
He appeared in only 177 games for Detroit the past three seasons in finishing off a four-year, $48 million contract extension.
At age 36, the three-time All-Star agreed to a minor-league deal. That will pay him a base salary of $1 million if he makes the club, and incentive bonuses based on plate appearances.
