The Seattle Mariners have agreed in principle with free agent outfielder Xavier Nady, who is expected to play for the team's Triple-A affiliate team, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.

Though he would have to earn his spot in the Triple-A, the Mariners hope Nady would help them solve their weakness against left-handed pitchers this season.

"Nady will likely join the club's Triple-A affiliate in hopes of earning a call-up. Should that occur, he would offer an outfield option to slot in against opposing southpaws for a club that has struggled in that department. (Seattle's outfielders have mustered only a .273 wOBA and 70 wRC+ against lefties, as a unit.)," according to Bob Dutton of Tacoma News Tribune via MLB Rumors.

Nady might already have passed his prime but he's still solid batter against left-handed pitchers, carrying a career 112 wRC+ against opposite-handed hitters (against a 93 wRC+ against righties). Last season, Nady put up a .879 OPS in 135 plate appearances against lefties.
