Mariners sign RHP Kinney and INF Andino

  •  

SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Mariners agreed to one-year contracts with reliever Josh Kinney and newly acquired infielder Robert Andino on Friday.

Kinney avoided arbitration with a split contract that pays him $700,000 in the majors and $200,000 in the minors. The right-hander was 0-3 with a 3.94 ERA and one save in 35 appearances for Seattle last season after making his debut in early July.

Andino was acquired in a trade with Baltimore on Nov. 20 for outfielder Trayvon Robinson. Andino briefly became a free agent Friday when the Mariners declined to tender him a contract for next season, but the team later announced the sides had agreed to a deal. Andino is expected to be a versatile backup in the infield.

Seattle tendered 2013 contracts to pitchers Jason Vargas and Shawn Kelley, shortstop Brendan Ryan and catcher John Jaso. All four are eligible for arbitration.
