The Seattle Mariners have apparently found their backup catcher…..again. The Mariners announced that they have re-signed catcher Humberto Quintero to a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training.

The 34-year-old Quintero split the 2013 season between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Mariners, batting a combined .237/.275/.366 with four homers in 140 plate appearances.
Montero will more than likely be competing in camp for the right to be Zunino’s backup.
