Willie Bloomquist went 2-for-3 with an RBI double as the Mariners topped the Tigers 4-0 on Sunday.

Bloomquist's run-scoring double off Max Scherzer in the fifth inning increased the Mariners advantage to 2-0, which was more than enough support for Roenis Elias. In limited time this season, the veteran infielder is hitting .237/.246/.322 with eight RBI.

Willie Bloomquist hit his first homer since 2011 in Friday's win over the Astros.

It was a two-run shot off spot starter Rudy Owens. Bloomquist had four homers for the Diamondbacks in 2011, but he was without one in 508 at-bats the last three seasons. He entered tonight with a .178/.196/.200 line in 45 at-bats this year.

Willie Bloomquist went 3-for-3 in Sunday's 9-8 victory over the Rangers in Cactus League play.

All three of the veteran infielder's hits were singles. He's slated to function in a utility role for the M's this season, and offers very little fantasy value outside of AL-only leagues.

Mariners signed INF/OF Willie Bloomquist to a two-year, $5.8 million contract.

Bloomquist appeared in only 48 games in 2013 due to a lingering hand injury, but he'll be 100 percent for spring training and will serve as an active utilityman for Seattle. The 36-year-old is a .271/.320/.346 career hitter in the major leagues.

Willie Bloomquist's new two-year deal with the Mariners carries a total value of $5.8 million.

That's the word from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Bloomquist appeared in only 48 games in 2013 due to a lingering left hand injury, but he should have a clean bill of health heading into the 2014 season and will serve as an active utilityman for Seattle. The 36-year-old is a .271/.320/.346 career hitter in the major leagues.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners are close to a deal with free agent Willie Bloomquist.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic says it's a two-year deal worth between $5 million and $6 million total. Bloomquist missed a large chunk of the 2013 season with a left hand injury and posted a pedestrian .727 OPS in 48 games for Arizona when he wasn't on the disabled list. He'll function as a utilityman next summer for Seattle.
