Mariners Sign Chris Reitsma

According to RotoWorld, the Mariners have signed right-handed reliever Chris Reitsma for $1.35MM with an option for ’08.  Not bad for a guy with an 8.68 ERA, eh?

Reitsma had July elbow surgery (not Tommy John) and hopes to be ready for spring.  The 29 year-old is yet another groundballing addition to the Mariner pitching staff (they’ve already got grounder-lovers Felix Hernandez, Miguel Batista, and Horacio Ramirez).
