SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have added two more pitchers to their spring training camp, signing left-hander Joe Beimel and right-hander Mark Rogers to minor league deals.

Seattle announced the moves Friday.

Beimel, 36, spent last season with Triple-A Gwinnett in the Atlanta organization, going 1-2 with a 4.36 ERA in 30 relief appearances. He missed the entire 2012 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. Previously he pitched for Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Tampa Bay, the Los Angeles Dodgers, Washington and Colorado. He last pitched in the majors in 2011.

Rogers, who turns 28 next week, was the fifth overall pick of the 2004 amateur draft by Milwaukee. He pitched in the majors in 2010 and 2012 with the Brewers, appearing in 11 games. He spent most of last season on the 60-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.
