NEW YORK, March 14 (16:45) Kyodo

Former Seattle Mariners infielder Munenori Kawasaki has signed a
minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays, a source with
knowledge of the deal told Kyodo News on Wednesday.

Kawasaki played for the Mariners last season, after winning a
spot on the team in spring training on a minor league contract. The
31-year-old, however, was released at the end of the year after
batting .192 with just seven RBIs and two stolen bases.

Kawasaki signed with Seattle as a free agent from the Pacific
League's Softbank Hawks.
