DETROIT (AP) -- Infielder Gordon Beckham agreed to a minor league contract with the Detroit Tigers and was invited to major league spring training.
If Beckham is added to the 40-man roster, he would get a one-year contract paying $700,000 while in the majors and $138,000 while in the minors. Beckham played in only 33 major league games over the past two seasons with the Seattle Mariners.
Catcher Hector Sanchez also agreed to a minor league deal.
Pitcher Casey Mize, taken by the Tigers with the No. 1 pick in last year's amateur draft, also was among 20 players invited to major league camp, the Tigers said Tuesday.
