The Seattle Mariners acquired catcher John Jaso from the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday for righthander Josh Lueke and a player to be named later.
Jaso, 28, batted .224 with five homers and 27 RBIs last season.
"John gives us a left-handed hitting catcher with some big league time who is still young," Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said a statement. "His left-handed bat will be a nice compliment to our right-handed hitting group. He's a tough kid with postseason experience and should be a nice fit with us."
Lueke, 26, posted a 1-1 mark with a 6.06 ERA last season.
