Mariners sign Tom Wilhelmsen to a Minor League Contract
The Mariners have signed 27 year old Tom Milhelmsen to a minor league contract. Milhelmsen has been out of baseball since 2005. He made a brief comeback last season with the Independent Golden League Tucson Toros. Milhelmsen used to be concidered one of the Brewers top Pitching Prospects in 2003. He has had drug abuse problems in the past and will probably start in Class A and stay in Extended Spring Training.
Tom Milhelmsen is from Arizona and was drafted in the 7th Round of the 2002 MLB Amateur Draft.
