The Seattle Mariners have signed left handed pitcher George Sherrill according to Jon Heyman via twitter. Now reportedly done, the deal was rumored to be close earlier by Jason Churchill of Prospect Insider. According to Churchill, the deal is worth around $1.1 million plus incentives.

Heyman points out that this leaves one fewer LOOGY in a shrinking market, too:

Sherrill had previously been with the Mariners from 2004-2007, and had stints with the Baltimore Orioles, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and most recently with the Atlanta Braves. He's a prototypical left-handed-one-out-guy with a career ERA of 3.68 but holds lefties to .180 / .241 / .275 throughout. Now 34, the Mariners should see value out of the deal with Sherrill if he does what he's always done. Thoughts?
