Josh Wilson agrees to one-year deal

Utility infielder Josh Wilson has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Mariners for 2011, the club announced as a busy Thursday night continues.

The Mariners were facing a decision on whether to tender a contract with Wilson that would have made him eligible for arbitration, but instead came to terms on a new deal just before the 9 p.m. PT tender deadline.

Wilson, 29, started a career-high 102 games last season for Seattle, primarily at shortstop after Jack Wilson was injured.

He hit .227 with 25 RBis and 22 runs scored while also starting games at first, second and third base.
