Ken Griffey Jr. to be named special consultant by the Mariners

My sources tell me that Ken Griffey Jr. will officially rejoin the Mariners today as a “Special Consultant” to the club.
No specific area of expertise will be involved. Instead, Griffey, who left the team June 2 and retired from baseball, will have his fingers in several different pies.
No word yet on when Griffey will be coming here to Arizona. He’s got prior commitments throughout February and won’t be able to come to spring training until March at the earliest. I’m told to expect an announcement by the team at some point today.
