But hey, Cliff Lee's signed, Derek Jeter's happy and Zack Greinke's been traded. We're left with Rob Johnson being traded from Seattle to San Diego for a paler to be named or cash.
Johnson was designated for assignment last week to make room for designated hitter Jack Cust on the 40-man roster.
Johnson, 27, hit .191/.293/.281 in 61 games for the Mariners last season. In 2009, he hit .213/.289/.326 in 80 games. He hit two homers in each of the last two seasons.
With the Padres, Johnson will back up Nick Hundley. The Mariners now have just one catcher, Adam Moore, on its 40-man roster.
UPDATE: Kind of a brain cramp, but the Mariners will have two catchers as soon as Miguel Olivo's contract is official.
