(SEATTLE) — The Seattle Mariners and Logan Morrison avoided salary arbitration on Tuesday and agreed to a one-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Seattle acquired Morrison in a trade with the Miami Marlins on Dec. 13, for right-handed pitcher Carter Capps.
The 26-year-old didn’t make his 2013 season debut until June, after recovering from right knee surgery. In 85 games, he batted .242 with six home runs and 36 RBIs.
Morrison brings versatility to the Mariners defense, having played 240 games in left field and 101 games at first base.
