The non-tender deadline has come and gone and the Mariners roster remains the same. It was actually missing one member for all of ten minutes as Robert Andino was non-tendered but then signed a one-year contract right after the deadline. Shortly before the 9:00 p.m. deadline, Josh Kinney agreed to a one-year deal with the club.

Jason Vargas, Brendan Ryan, John Jaso and Shawn Kelley were all tendered offers. These players will now negotiate with the team and either sign contracts or head to arbitration. The two sides can negotiate right up until the arbitration hearings which are held in early spring.

With today’s moves the 40-man roster was at 39 for a few minutes and now is back at 40.
