Seattle Mariners sign Rickie Weeks to one-year deal


On Wednesday Rickie Weeks finally found a home with the Seattle Mariners. The Mariners signed Weeks to a one-year deal worth $2 million that includes up to another $2 million in incentives.

He’ll play back-up to superstar second baseman Robinson Cano and is also expected to compete for time at the corner outfield positions.

While he isn’t the same player he was in 2010 and 2011, the 32-year-old is still an effective slugger against left handed pitching and could also be used at DH or as a pinch hitter.

Weeks is a career .249 hitter and when healthy can has consistently put up good OPS numbers. He should be a solid and versatile bench player for the Mariners in 2015.
