The Seattle Mariners have signed free-agent southpaw George Sherrill to a one-year contract for 2012, the club announced today after Sherill passed a physical. The Mariners 40-man roster now sits at 38 players.

It was reported earlier in the month the two sides reached an agreement to a deal worth just north of $1 million along with incentives.

The 34-year-old Sherrill rejoins the Mariners, whom he had previously been with from 2004-2007. He also spent time with the Orioles, Dodgers and most recently the Braves before coming to a full circle. Sherill is a your prototypical lefty-one-out-guy from the bullpen, and is most effective when used in that role. In his career, Sherrill holds lefties to a .180/.241/.275 slash line.
