Via the official website of the Seattle Mariners:

Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jerry Dipoto announced today the club signed outfielder Franklin Gutierrez to a 1-year contract through the 2016 season. Per club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Gutierrez pulled off a tremendous comeback in 2015, posting a .974 OPS and slugging 15 home runs in 59 games as the Mariners’ primary left fielder in the second half. He missed all of 2014 and appeared in only 81 total games at the major league level between 2013-2012 due to chronic injuries.

We’ll pass along the contract terms when they are disclosed.
