Hold the phone: Robert Andino enjoys free agency for about 10 minutes

Robert Andino just reached a one-year deal with the Mariners, needing all of about 10 minutes to test the free agent waters after Seattle non-tendered him. That’s got to be some type of record, but hey, Mariners fans needed a little suspense to keep them awake as we head into the winter meetings,

So, that’s Andino and Josh Kinney under contract and John Jaso, Jason Vargas, Brendan Ryan and Shawn Kelley tendered deals. Nobody else was non-tendered tonight.

And yes, clearly, the Mariners and Andino were working on a deal right up to the deadline. The non-tendering of him was just a paperwork formality because of the deadline, but the deal was done within minutes of it passing, so no harm no foul. We’re all set for the winter meetings now.
