Mariners Sign Ramon Vazquez

The Mariners signed infielder Ramon Vazquez to a minor league deal, according to a team press release.  Vazquez, who originally came up in the organization, will stay in extended spring training before being assigned to a minor league team.  The Pirates are on the hook for Vazquez's $2MM, minus a big league salary if he makes it.  The Bucs released Vazquez eleven days ago.

Vazquez, 33, hit .230/.335/.279 last year in 239 plate appearances last year, playing second base, shortstop, and third base and dealing with a knee injury.  He can be useful against right-handed pitching.

The team lacks a true utility and considering Jack Wilson’s propensity to break down, he should be considered a good option in case the inevitable happens.

I guess he’s going to be the Jesus Colome of position players for us.

Tui’s a viable offensive option, but a defensive liability
