The Mariners signed righty Wes Littleton to a minor league deal, tweets ESPN's Shannon Drayer. Littleton, 27, spent '09 with the Brewers' Double A and Triple A clubs after being claimed off waivers from the Red Sox. It was a rough year, as he posted an overall 6.50 ERA, 7.5 K/9, and 7.7 BB/9.
Littleton has 102.3 innings of big league experience with the Rangers from 2006-08. Even after a useful '07 season, Baseball America noted that "the possibility exists that major leaguers will adjust to his funky motion and start to hit him."
