Jason Bay Signs With Mariners

An article by posted on December 5, 2012

The Mariners have agreed to terms with free-agent outfielder Jason Bay on a major-league contract and are close to finalizing, reports CBS Sports’s Jon Heyman.

The deal is for one year and is expected to be worth less than $1MM, according to Greg Johns of MLB.com.

Bay was released early last month by the Mets with $21 million remaining on his contract. His Seattle salary will be deducted from the Mets’ obligation to him.

Seattle is as close to Canada as you can get while still playing in the states. I bet that was a big part of the allure for Bay.
