The 30-year-old righty split last season between the Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros.
In a combined 53 appearances, Graveman was 5-1 with a 1.77 earned run average and 0.982 WHIP over 56.0 innings pitched. The Alexander City, AL native also saved 10 games, all with the Mariners.
Graveman heads into his eighth big-season.
He also spent time with the Toronto Blue Jays and Oakland Athletics.
Graveman joins a bullpen that already features All-Stars Liam Hendriks and Craig Kimbrel.
