The Seattle Mariners avoided arbitration with recently signed first baseman/DH Kendrys Morales and shortstop Brendan Ryan, agreeing to one-year contracts with each.

Today is the deadline for teams and players to exchange arbitration figures. So all across baseball, players who are arbitration eligible are agreeing on deals with clubs to avoid the arbitration process.

The Mariners have one arbitration eligible player on their roster – reliever Shawn Kelley.

According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, Morales agreed to a 1-year, $5.25 million contract with performances. He made $2.975 million last season with the Angels. Heyman also reported that Ryan received $3.25 million, a raise from the $1.75 million he was paid last season.
