The Seattle Mariners have signed outfielder Jason Bay, Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports. The deal is for around $1mm, Greg Johns of MLB.com adds.
Bay still had one year left on his four-year $66mm deal he signed with the Mets. The parties however agreed to part ways which allowed Bay to sign with his home town Mariners.
During his time in New York, he not only battled injuries, but also his bat. He hit just .234/.318/.369 in 1,125 plate appearances with only 26 home runs and 124 RBIs during that span.
