The Seattle Mariners announced that they have re-signed reliever Oliver Perez to a one-year contract for the 2013 season.
“We are happy to have reached a mutual agreement with Oliver,” said GM Jack Zduriencik in a statement. ”He did a very nice job in helping solidify our bullpen after his call up last summer. As a veteran left-hander, and one that had adjusted very nicely to his new role, we are looking forward to his contributions as we go into the 2013 campaign.”
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports that Perez will receive a base salary of $1.5 million with another $600K in performance bonuses.
Perez has reinvented himself and turned in a solid season in his first full season as a reliever while with Seattle.
He posted a 2.12 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP in 33 appearances and his fastball has been clocked at an average of 93.7 mph this season.
