Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jack Zduriencik announced today that the club has signed veteran infielder Adam Kennedy as a minor league free agent and invited him to Major League spring training.

The Mariners have now extended invitations to 15 non-roster players to Major League Spring Training (RHP - 5, LHP - 3, C - 2, INF - 3, OF - 2). Mariners pitchers and catchers will report for spring training on Feb. 13 (physicals) and hold the first workout Feb. 14. Position players will report Feb. 18 and the first full-squad workout will be held Feb. 19 at the Mariners spring training complex in Peoria, Ariz.

Kennedy, who turned 35 today, is a veteran of 12 Major League seasons with the Cardinals (1999, 2007-08), Angels (2000-06), A's (2009) and Nationals (2010). He is a .275 hitter (1355x4925) with 257 doubles, 40 triples, 71 home runs and 170 stolen bases in 1,491 career games. He appeared in 135 games with the Washington Nationals last season, batting .249 (85x342) with 16 doubles, 3 home runs, 31 RBI and 14 stolen bases.

Kennedy is a career .308 (24x78) hitter in the postseason (25 games), helping lead the Angels to the 2002 World Series title and the 2005 ALCS. He was named the MVP of the 2002 ALCS, batting .357 (5x14) in four games, including the sixth three-home run game in postseason history (GM#5, 10/13/02 vs. MIN).

He was originally selected by St. Louis in the first round (20th overall) of the 1997 June draft out of Cal State Northridge.
