The Seattle Mariners have agreed to terms on a two-year deal with infielder Willie Bloomquist,'s Jon Heyman reported on Twitter.

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported the deal was for around $5-6 million.

Bloomquist has been with the Arizona Diamondbacks for the last three seasons after starting his career with Mariners, where he was drafted and played for seven years.

The 36-year old Bloomquist batted .317 last season with no home runs or stolen bases, while spending time at various infield positions. The deal will be finalized after Bloomquist passes a team physical with the M's.
