Mariners Sign Jesus Colome

The Mariners signed righty Jesus Colome to a minor league deal, according to a team press release.  Colome, 32, posted a 7.59 ERA, 6.3 K/9, and 2.5 BB/9 in 21.3 innings for the Nationals and Brewers last year.  Additionally, he logged 17.3 strong innings in Triple A.

With a 94.7 mph average fastball, Colome is an intriguing risk-free pickup.  Poor control had been a major flaw until last year, when he posted an overall BB/9 of 2.33 in 38.6 innings.  The Mariners' other non-roster invitees can be viewed here.
