The Kansas City T-Bones and manager Tim Doherty have announced the signing of infielder Jimmy Mojica for the 2010 season.
Mojica, 26, began the 2009 season with the Pensacola Pelicans of the independent American Association before having his contract purchased by the Seattle Mariners on June 27, 2009. Before his departure, Mojica was fifth in the league with a .354 average and tied for second with 15 stolen bases in 33 games. He finished the season at Double-A West Tennessee.

A product of Kansas City Kansas Community College, Mojica was named Freshman of the Year with the Blue Devils in 2004. He began his professional career in 2006 with St. Joe of the American Association before spending the 2007 season in the Milwaukee Brewers organization.
