The Seattle Mariners have signed reliever Hong-Chih Kuo to a 1-year, major league deal according to Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times.

Kuo, 31 in July, has played his entire 7-season Major League career with the Los Angeles Dodgers and has maintained a 3.73 ERA in the process. He's compiled slightly more than 4 wins above replacement in that time, with his best season in 2010 when he earned nearly 3 of those with 60 frames of 1.20 ERA ball.
