Reports: Mariners sign Fernando Rodney

The Mariners might have found a new closer on Thursday, signing free-agent right-hander Fernando Rodney, according to multiple reports.

Grantland’s Jonah Keri was the first to break the deal, which reportedly will be worth $14 million over two years, with another $1 million available through incentives. The club has not confirmed the signing.

Rodney, who turns 37 in March, saved 48 games for the Rays in 2012 and 37 last year, when he posted a 3.38 ERA in 68 games.

Danny Farquhar finished last season as Seattle’s closer, racking up 16 saves.
