Shawn Kelley and Mariners agree to $935,000 deal

There will again be no arbitration hearings for the Mariners and any players this year as Shawn Kelley agreed today to a $935,000 deal that meets halfway between his proposed $1.2 million and the team’s $750,000 offer. Jerry Crasnick of ESPN first reported the terms.

That means the Mariners have now agreed to terms with all of their current players and will enter 2013 with the bullpen again looking like one of their strongest areas.

It’s telling that just a few years ago, Kelley was the team’s best relief option against left-handers despite being a righty. His slider helped neutralize lefties considerably in his 2009 debut season.

Back then, the Mariners had no lefties in the bullpen other than long relievers Jason Vargas and Garrett Olson. Now, they have Oliver Perez, Charlie Furbush and Lucas Luetke for both situational and longer roles.
