Mike Jacobs joins Mariners on minor league contract

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.

    That’s the best I’ve ever seen Mike Jacobs use a glove.

    As a Tacoma resident (and most likely season ticket holder) this excites me. Hopefully Jacobs can put some hurt on Foss High School (which sits out beyond the RF wall in Tacoma). He’s really there to hit a bunch of home runs and score some runs for the young stud pitchers the M’s will be running through Tacoma this year…and also play some terrible 1B defense so Franklin learns how to throw to first in the air.
