Mariners camp full after Paulino arrives


PEORIA, Ariz. -- Catcher Ronny Paulino arrived at Mariners camp on Sunday after dealing with a visa issue getting out of the Dominican Republic, finally giving the club its full 61-man contingent.

Paulino, a non-roster invitee on a Minor League contract, missed his fifth day of practice as he underwent his physical.

Manager Eric Wedge said Paulino would be on the field Monday. He gives the Mariners six catchers in camp, joining Jesus Montero and Kelly Shoppach, as well as prospects Mike Zunino, John Hicks and Jesus Sucre.

Paulino, 31, has spent parts of eight seasons in the Majors, including last year when he played 20 games for the Orioles and hit .254. He's a career .272 hitter in 573 games with the Pirates, Marlins, Mets and Orioles.

Right-handed reliever Jhonny Nunez, who also was late to camp due to visa issues, took part in his second day of workouts Sunday. He'll throw his second 10-minute bullpen session Monday as he catches up with the rest of the pitchers.
