SEATTLE (AP) — Utility player Willie Bloomquist has officially signed a two-year contract with the Seattle Mariners, bringing him back to the team he started his major league career with.

Seattle announced the deal on Thursday after Bloomquist passed a physical.

Bloomquist spent the past three seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks, appearing in 225 games and hitting .289 with 36 doubles and 63 RBIs over that time. Last season with Arizona, he appeared in 48 games and had 139 at-bats.

The 36-year-old Bloomquist spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Mariners. His high point came in 2006 when Bloomquist appeared in 102 games for Seattle. He spent the 2009-10 seasons with Kansas City and Cincinnati before joining the Diamondbacks.
