SEATTLE (AP) - Logan Morrison and the Seattle Mariners have reached agreement on a $1.75 million contract for the 2014 season and avoided arbitration.
The team announced the agreement on Tuesday. This season will be Morrison's first with the Mariners after being acquired in a trade with Miami during the offseason.
Morrison's deal also includes up to $375,000 in performance bonuses based on plate appearances. Morrison had requested $2.5 million and was offered $1.1 million.
Morrison has not been able to match the power he showed during the 2011 season when he hit 23 homers with 72 RBIs. Morrison had right knee surgery in September 2012 and missed the first two months of the 2013 season. He hit .242 with six homers and 36 RBIs in 85 games last year.
