Mariners sign Tom Wilhelmsen to a one-year deal


In addition to trading for Wade LeBlank today, the Seattle Mariners signed righty reliever Tom Wilhelmsen to a one-year contract.

Wilhelmsen became a free agent last week after getting DFA’d by the Rangers. He was pretty godawful for Texas, posting a 10.55 ERA in 21 games. He was excellent for Seattle in 2014 and 2015, however, so the homecoming may do him some good. At least that’s the M’s hope.
