Today was the day that arbitration figures needed to be exchanged if agreement was not reached with arbitration-eligible players. The Mariners had three such players and agreements were reached with two of them, Kendrys Morales and Brendan Ryan.

Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that Ryan received $3.25 million and that the Morales deal is worth $5.25 million plus performance bonuses. Morales earned $2.975 million last year. Jason Vargas, whom the Mariners traded for Morales, avoided arbitration signing a one-year $8.5 million dollar deal with the Angels.

Shawn Kelley remains the only unsigned arbitration-eligible player for the Mariners. Figures between the two sides have been exchanged and they can negotiate right up until the arbitration hearing next month.
