Seattle Mariners Sign Carlos Guillen

Update 9:40 PM ET: Guillen will earn $1 million if he makes the major league roster with incentives based on plate appearances, according to Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times.

Original Story: The Seattle Mariners have signed infielder Carlos Guillen to a minor league deal with an invite to major league spring training, the club announced via Twitter.

Guillen, 36, hit .232/.265/.368 in 102 plate appearances last season with the Detroit Tigers. The veteran began his career in the majors with the Mariners and played six years with Seattle before being traded to the Tigers.

Guillen hit free agency after his four-year, $48 million contract ended at last season's end. Obviously, it didn't end well for him on the field, thus he was unable to land a guaranteed contract from a team. Guillen's only played in 177 games the past three seasons, and even in limited time, the 36-year-old hit poorly in 2011.
