MLB

The Seattle Mariners have signed former Dodgers pitcher Hong-Chih Kuo to a one-year deal, according to ESPN.com.

Kuo had been pitching for the Dodgers organization since 1999. He was made a free-agent after the Dodgers non-tendered him last December.

Despite being on the disabled list with elbow and back injuries as well as anxiety over the last two seasons, Kuo had passed his physical for this coming season.

During his seven-year MLB career with the Dodgers, Kuo is 13-7 with 3.73 career ERA in 293 1/3 innings pitched.
