M's reach 2-year deal with Ryan

Posted on: January 4, 2011 6:38 pm

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.

M's reach 2-year deal with Ryan

Ryan hit close to .300 the year before. He's definitely better than a .223 hitter & he may be the best defensive SS in MLB. The Cardinals may regret letting him go.

M's reach 2-year deal with Ryan

The Mariners didn't have enough guys last year that hit around .223? Nice to see they are "padding the stats" with these incredible pickups.
