Mariners Sign Pitcher

The Seattle Mariners have signed Jacob Barnes to a minor league contract.

Barnes was released by the Detroit Tigers earlier this month, but he will now have a chance to prove himself with the Mariners organization. He will be beginning his tenure with the team in Triple-A Tacoma, but an eventual call-up does not seem out of the question.

In 22 games this season with the Tigers, Barnes struggled, as he had a 6.10 ERA. However, perhaps the change of scenery will help him get back on track.
