On October 19, 2009, catcher Kenji Johjima, the first Japanese-born catcher in Major League Baseball, exercised an opt-out clause in his contract and returned to playing in Nippon Professional Baseball.[4] The Mariners also lost their home run leader, Russell Branyan, who declined a one-year deal with the Mariners to test the free agent market.[5] Two-time Gold Glove winner Adrián Beltré opted for free agency on November 5, 2009, and later signed with the Boston Red Sox.[6] The third baseman declined $12 million in arbitration from the Mariners only days after the team signed Chone Figgins (see below).[7] Beltre officially parted ways with the Mariners when he signed a one-year, $9 million deal with the Boston Red Sox. Pitcher Phillippe Aumont, noted as one of the top prospects in the organization, was sent to the Phillies in the trade for Cliff Lee. Also, pitcher Brandon Morrow was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays as well.[8] Carlos Silva, whose time in Seattle was plagued by injury, was traded to the Chicago Cubs on December 18.[9]

Chone Figgins signed a four-year contract with the Mariners during the off-season.

Ken Griffey, Jr. returned to the Mariners with a one-year deal after a successful 2009 season and large amount of Seattle fans asking for "one more year."[12] Shortstop Jack Wilson signed a two-year, $10 million deal to remain in Seattle. Wilson was one of the players received from the Pittsburgh Pirates at the trading deadline in 2009.[13]

On December 14, 2009, the Mariners, along with the three other organizations including the Philadelphia Phillies, the Toronto Blue Jays, and the Oakland Athletics agreed to a 4-team, 9-player deal. The Mariners received former Cy Young Award winner Cliff Lee from Philadelphia in exchange for three prospects as a complement to ace Félix Hernández.[14][15][16][17][18]

On December 18, 2009, the Mariners traded pitcher Carlos Silva and cash considerations to the Chicago Cubs for outfielder Milton Bradley, particularly noting his offensive capabilities.[9] On December 22, the Mariners traded Brandon Morrow to the Toronto Blue Jays for pitcher Brandon League, and a minor league prospect.[8] The Mariners acquired first baseman Casey Kotchman from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for utility player Bill Hall, a player to be named later, and cash considerations. On January 29, 2010, the Mariner signed outfielder Eric Byrnes to a one-year, $400,000 contract after he was released by the Arizona Diamondbacks.[19] The Mariners signed first baseman Ryan Garko to a one-year $550,000 contract on February 1.[20] On February 6, the Mariners re-signed pitcher Érik Bédard to a one-year, $1.5 million contract, with a mutual option for 2011.[21]

Minor league acquisitions[edit]

Corey Patterson signed a minor league contract with the Mariners on December 9, 2009.

After the World Series, the Mariners cleared five spots from their 40-man roster after infielder Bryan LaHair, pitchers César Jiménez, Randy Messenger and Marwin Vega were outrighted to the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers, and pitcher Justin Thomas was claimed off waivers by the Pittsburgh Pirates.[22] The Mariners added seven new scouts after the season including the West Coast Supervisor Butch Baccala, Southern California scout John Ramey, Northwest scout Joe Ross, Midwest scout Tony Russo, Southwest scout Jess Kapellusch, Atlantic scout Mike Moriarty, and Gulf Coast scout Devitt Moore.[23]

Travis Denker signed a minor league contract with the Mariners in December 2009.

On November 25, the Mariners re-signed minor league pitchers Steve Bray and Steven Shell, and catcher José Yépez.[24] On December 9, the Mariners signed outfielder Corey Patterson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.[25] It was reported by Baseball America that the Mariners signed pitcher Levale Speigner and infielder Travis Denker, and also re-signed pitcher Chris Seddon and Josh Wilson to minor league contracts on December 12.[26] On December 16, the Mariners signed 19-year-old Brazilian prospect Pedro Okuda to a minor league contract.[27] During the trade for Cliff Lee, the Mariners gave up three prospects including pitchers Phillippe Aumont and J. C. Ramírez and outfielder Tyson Gillies.[28]

On December 22, Baseball America reported that the Mariners re-signed pitcher Mike Koplove, and signed pitcher David Pauley, and catcher Ralph Henriquez, Jr..[29] During the trade for Brandon League, the Mariners also acquired minor league outfielder Johermyn Chávez from the Blue Jays.[8] On December 28, the Mariners signed catcher Josh Bard, and re-signed pitcher Chad Cordero to minor league contracts with invitations to spring training.[30] The Mariners signed free agent utility player Chris Woodward, who was in their organization during the first half of the 2009 season, to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.[31] On January 13, the Mariners re-signed first baseman Brad Nelson to a minor league contract with and invitation to spring training.[32] Formerly of the Milwaukee Brewers organization, Jesús Colomé signed a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training with the Mariners on February 10.[33] On February 12, 2010, the Mariners signed Mike Sweeney, a player who MLB.com called a "key clubhouse component from the Mariners' dramatic 2009 turnaround", to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.[34]
