That means Seattle eats the remaining $8 million on his contract for 2013 and Figgins is able to sign with any other team as a free agent.
He ended up hitting .227 with a .302 on-base percentage in three seasons and 308 games for the Mariners after signing a four-year, $36 million deal as a free agent. In the three seasons before that Figgins hit .301 with a .386 on-base percentage in 389 games for the Angels.
And now at age 35 he’ll collect that $8 million salary and probably compete for a bench gig somewhere.
