Mariners Sign Wes Littleton

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."

      Yeah…approaching Oliver Pérez territory (at 8.7)…but not quite there yet.

        Actually, He was quite promising on the Rangers. That never ended up well. Hopefully he can get his act together and have a good spring.

    The M’s are signing quite a few guys for depth who I hope to never see on our major league roster.

    I remember when this guy recorded a 3 inning save in a 23-1 victory I think with the Rangers. What a joke (the save, not him).

    [Followed up by the customary agonizing about how the Mets missed the boat on this guy, and now Omar’s days are numbered for sure…]

    Hmm….did we miss anything?

    Who knows how all Jack Z’s moves will play out, but on paper at least, those are some impact upgrades. So hey, why not?!

    “Look out World Series…here come the M’s!”

    I’d say if he can figure out his control a LOT better. That BB/9 ratio is atrocious. But no, I do agree that if he can somehow figure it out, he could be a decent arm out of the ‘pen, likely in the second half.
