The contract includes an invite to spring training. Rodriguez, 31, batted .197/.299/.333 with two homers, 14 RBI and a .633 OPS over 139 plate appearances this season. With the ability to play multiple infield positions, he has a pretty good chance of making the M's Opening Day roster.

Luis Rodriguez was held out of Friday's lineup due to a right hand injury.

Rodriguez suffered three gashes on his hand when the Twins' Danny Valencia caught him with his spikes on a stolen base attempt during Thursday's game. "He got me good," said Rodriguez. "I tried to grip my bat and I can't do it, so I don't know. I'll see how it feels tomorrow." With Brendan Ryan also out of the lineup, Kyle Seager made the start at shortstop Friday night against the Rangers.

Luis Rodriguez's third hit of the night was his biggest on Wednesday, as he took the Yankees' Cory Wade deep for a walkoff blast in the 12th.

Rodriguez doubled twice off Yankees starter Ivan Nova. Coming into this evening, Rodriguez had just eight extra-base hits in 91 at-bats. A 31-year-old career .239 hitter, Rodriguez and his .198/.301/.354 2011 triple slash are going to have a hard time finding a spot on a major-league roster next season.
