The Seattle Mariners are said to be on the verge of signing Japanese catcher Kenji Jojima.
A source said Friday that the Mariners are close to signing Jojima to a two-year contract worth about $8 million with an option for a third season.
The 29-year-old Jojima was in Seattle on Friday, although he wasn’t accompanied by his agent, Alan Nero.
Jojima - who is attempting to become the first Japanese-born catcher in the major leagues - was said to be looking for a three-year contract worth between $16-$18 million.
