Shawn Kelley avoids arbitration with Mariners

Jan 31, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT


Right-hander Shawn Kelley has avoided arbitration with the Mariners by agreeing to a one-year, $935,000 deal.

Kelley requested $1.2 million and the team countered at $750,000, so the reliever settled for $40,000 below the midpoint while also getting $165,000 in potential incentives as part of the deal.

This was Kelley’s second season of arbitration eligibility after he was paid $600,000 last year for 44 innings of a 3.25 ERA and 45/15 K/BB ratio.

    it seems to me that all these “negotiatons” tend to just go to the number between the two saleries that were shown. they always tend to go to the middle so why even negotiate, after both saleries are chosen just say ok meet you half way and done! No need to wait weeks or a month, simple and done
