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."
