The Seattle Mariners have signed right-hander David Pauley to a minor league contract, reports Shannon Drayer of ESPN Seattle.

Pauley's return to the Mariners, where he pitched from 2010 to part way through 2011, marks the third organization the right-hander has pitched for this season. Pauley has made ten big league appearances in relief this year, putting up a 6.48 ERA across 16 2/3 innings.

The 29-year-old began the season in the Los Angeles Angels bullpen then was claimed on waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays in late June. After just five appearances in Toronto, Pauley was designated for assignment then was granted free agency last week.

Pauley has a career 4.68 ERA in 209 2/3 innings across parts of five major league seasons. He will report to the Mariners' Triple-A affiliate in Tacoma, Kansas.
