The Seattle Mariners have signed Dae-Ho Lee to a one-year Minor League contract.
The Korean slugger could earn up to $4 million with incentives if he makes the Major League roster.
"Dae-Ho gives us another potential right-handed power bat in the first-base competition," Jerry Dipoto said.
"He has performed at a very high level of production in both Korea and Japan, and we are excited to see how that translates to our team."
Lee, 33, put up a .282/.368/.524 line with 31 home runs and 98 RBIs in 141 games last year for SoftBank in Japan's Nippon Professional League.
