The Mariners have avoided arbitration with a two-year deal for newly acquired shortstop Brendan Ryan, according to the Associated Press.
Ryan, acquired last month from the Cardinals, was arbitration-eligible for the first time. He'll get $1 million in 2011 and $1.75 million in 2012. The 29-year-old defensive wiz batted .223/.279/.294 last season.
