Mariners sign Corey Patterson

The Mariners have signed Corey Patterson to a minor-league deal.

The Mariners have signed outfielder Corey Patterson to a minor-league deal, and he will report to the team's extended-Spring Training facilities in Arizona, reports Greg Johns of MLB.com via Twitter.

The veteran will provide the team with solid depth in the outfield, though it is unclear when he will be ready to play if needed. He will likely need some time to get into shape at the team's Arizona facilities.

Patterson has played for the Cubs, Orioles, Reds, Nationals, Brewers, Orioles again, Blue Jays, and the Cardinals. He has not played in the Major Leagues since 2011, when he did so with St Louis.

The Mariners could use Patterson, who even despite his age is still known as a good outfield defender. With the cavernous Safeco Field, the team needs all the speed and range they can get out there.
