Seattle has signed Mike Jacobs to a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to spring training.
Because the Mariners already had a first base/designated hitter logjam Jacobs’ odds of making the team aren’t very good, but then again he played just 13 games in the majors last season with the Diamondbacks and hasn’t been a regular in the majors since 2009 with the Royals.
He’s put up some solid numbers at Triple-A during the past few seasons, so the Mariners likely added the 31-year-old Jacobs mostly to help Tacoma.
Jacobs is a career .253 hitter with 100 homers and a .786 OPS in 569 games for the Mets, Marlins, Royals, and Diamondbacks.
