M's sign right-handed reliever Colome to minor-league deal

The Mariners' stockpiling of arms continues with the signing today of right-handed reliever Jesus Colome to a minor league contract with an invitation to the big-league spring training camp.

Colome, 32, pitched in 21 games last year with the Washington Nationals, going 1-1 with an 8.40 earned run average before they released him on July 10. The Brewers signed him as a minor-league free agent and he came up to pitch five games with a 5.68 ERA.

He has pitched in the big leagues in parts of the past nine seasons, with a 19-26 record and a 4.66 ERA in 328 appearances with the Rays, Nationals and Brewers.

With Colome, the Mariners' current head count is 63 for their big-league spring training camp, 32 of them pitchers. Spring training begins a week from today when pitchers and catchers report to the Mariners' facility in Peoria, Ariz. The first workout is next Thursday, Feb. 18.
