As first mentioned by Bob Dutton of the Tacoma New Times and then confirmed by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Mariners have agreed to terms on a minor league contract with outfielder Xavier Nady.

Nady, who’s expected to head directly to Triple-A Tacoma, elected free agency after being outrighted off the Padres’ 40-man roster the first week of May. He was batting just .135 with a .238 on-base percentage in 42 plate appearances for San Diego and hasn’t been a productive major leaguer since 2008.

Nady, a career .268/.323/.432 hitter in the big leagues, turned 35 years old this offseason.

    This site reports this inconsequential news but forgets to inform its audience that Jimmy Nelson was called up to pitch for Milwaukee on Sunday. It might be time to explore other avenues for baseball news.
