SEATTLE (AP) -- The Seattle Mariners signed outfielder Cole Gillespie and right-handed pitchers Matt Palmer and Ramon Ramirez to minor league contracts Thursday and invited them to major league spring training.

Palmer has appeared in 63 career major league games, but not since 2012 with San Diego. Palmer, 34, spent last season with Triple-A Albuquerque in the Los Angeles Dodgers' organization.

Ramirez, 32, has pitched in parts of eight seasons with Colorado, Kansas City, Boston, San Francisco and the New York Mets. Last season, he appeared in six games for the Giants.
