He made his major league debut with Seattle in 2008 and hit .224/.309/.306 in 30 major league games that season. Hulett appeared in 15 games with Kansas City last year, hitting .111/.158/.111 in 18 at-bats. He is a career .284 hitter in parts of six minor league seasons with a .393 on-base percentage. Last season with the Triple-A Omaha Royals, Hulett hit .291/.384/.473 with 11 home runs and 9 steals in 99 games.
