Vargas, League, Kelley agree to one-year deals

All three of the Mariners arbitration-eligible players — pitchers Jason Vargas, Brandon League and Shawn Kelley — have tentatively reached agreements on one-year deals Tuesday, thus avoiding the arbitration process.

Today is the deadline for arbitration-eligible players to sign contracts, or players and clubs must file their separate offers and then begin the arbitration process.

The Mariners avoided that process with all three. Vargas agreed to a one-year, $4.85 million deal, according to a tweet from his agency, CAA Sports.

League agreed to a one-year, $5 million deal, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Kelley, in his first year of arbitration as a Super 2 player, agreed to a one-year, $600,000 deal, with a potential for another $50,000 in incentives.

Darvish signed with Texas. So let’s get on with it. The Mariner’s NEED to spend the cash and sign Fielder and actually add some serious threat in their line up. You can’t just depend on one guy, adding Montero helps. But to have Fielder, Montero and Carp in the line -up could make the Mariners an actual force in the West. We paid for the park and so now it’s time to collect. Give the Fans a treat and bring a real big named hitter to our park and do it now please.
