SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP)
The team announced the deals Sunday without providing financial terms.
Right-handed pitchers Kanekoa Texeira, Kevin Pucetas and Henry Barrera, left-handed pitcher Everett Teaford and catcher Lucas May signed one-year contracts.
Texeira was 1-0 with a 4.64 ERA in 27 relief appearances after being claimed June 3 off waivers from the Mariners.
May hit .189 in 12 games after a September promotion, while Pucetas, Barrera and Teaford have never been in the majors.
