Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Mariners have signed free agent outfielder Cole Gillespie to a minor league contract. It presumably comes with an invitation to spring training.

Gillespie has a promising .290/.386/.475 career batting line at Triple-A, but it’s just .225/.293/.337 at the major level and the 29-year-old is unlikely to crack Seattle’s Opening Day roster next spring.

Gillespie was a third-round pick of the Brewers in 2006. He has played for the Diamondbacks, Giants, and he spent the 2013 season with the Cubs.
