SEATTLE — In need of a backup for projected starting catcher Mike Zunino, the Mariners brought back a familiar face to compete for that open job. On Monday, the team announced it had re-signed veteran Humberto Quintero to a minor-league contract with an invite to major-league spring training.

Quintero, 34, appeared in 22 games for the Mariners last season, hitting .224 with two home runs and four runs batted in. He started the season with the Phillies and played in 24 games, hitting .250 with two homers and nine RBI. He was designated for assignment by the Phillies on July 24. The Mariners signed him on July 26, a day after Zunino suffered a broken hand in a game.
