SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Two days after being released by the Mariners, pitcher Jon Garland signed a major-league contract with the Colorado Rockies.

Garland, 33, missed the last 1 ½ seasons after surgery on his pitching shoulder in 2011.

He went 1-0 with a 2.25 earned-run average in four Cactus League starts for the Mariners this spring. He asked for his release Friday after being told the team wouldn't commit to him being in the rotation.

The 6-foot-6 right-hander has a 132-119 career mark with a 4.32 ERA in 12 major-league seasons with five teams.

Notes

• Yankees SS Derek Jeter will likely join Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson on the team's star-studded disabled list for the season opener. The Yankees were working on a deal to acquire 34-year-old OF Vernon Wells from the Angels.

• Former Mariners RHP Freddy Garcia, 36, was released by the Padres. Garcia had a 1-4 record and an 8.71 ERA in six spring starts.

Carl Crawford hit his first home run in the Dodgers' 7-4 Cactus League win over Oakland and played left field for the only the second time since his elbow surgery last August.

Aaron Hicks, who played in Class AA last year, was named the Twins' starting center fielder. He's hitting .350 this spring.
