SEATTLE (AP) -Left-handed reliever Arthur Rhodes is back with the Seattle Mariners, agreeing Tuesday to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Rhodes missed last season with an elbow injury and had ligament replacement surgery in May. He made Seattle's 25-man roster out of spring training despite being a non-roster invitee and missing time with soreness in his elbow.
He had surgery on May 2 and was often in the Mariners' clubhouse wearing a large brace on his arm during the season. He became a free agent in the offseason.
The 38-year-old Rhodes was Seattle's main setup man for four years, going 26-15 during his stint with the Mariners from 2000-03. Rhodes was 8-0 with a 1.72 ERA when the Mariners won 116 games in 2001.
After stops in Oakland, Cleveland and Baltimore, Rhodes went 0-5 with a 5.32 ERA in 55 games for Philadelphia in 2006.
