The Mariners begin what promises to be a busy off-season today with a search for a new general manager.

One thing that GM will inherit is nine players under contract for $75.9 million. And that doesn’t include either Felix Hernandez or Erik Bedard, who are arbitration eligible.

It also doesn’t include a left fielder, center fielder, designated hitter or a first baseman who wants to play the position.

Here’s a look at what Seattle has under contract.

Mariners contracts in 2009  
Ichiro Suzuki $17 million
Adrian Beltre $12 million
Carlos Silva $11 million
Jarrod Washburn $10.3 million
Miguel Batista $9 million
Kenji Johjima $8 million
J.J. Putz $5 million
Yuniesky Betancourt $2 million
Jose Lopez $1.6 million
