SEATTLE (AP) -- Carlos Guillen is returning to Seattle after agreeing to a minor league contract with the Mariners.
The 36-year-old spent the past eight seasons in Detroit where he was a three-time All-Star and hit .308 in his career with the Tigers playing five positions: left field, third base, shortstop, second base and first base. Guillen started his career with the Mariners from 1998-03, playing in 488 games in Seattle. Guillen is likely to compete for a reserve utility role with the Mariners.
Seattle announced the deal on Wednesday. The Mariners pitchers and catchers report on Feb. 11 while the first full-squad workout will be on Feb. 18.
