Mandatory Credit: Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Mariners avoided arbitration hearings with newly-acquired Logan Morrison by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $1.75 million.

The deal is also worth up to $350K in incentives for the following plate appearance totals in 2014:

Morrison, acquired via a trade with the Miami Marlins that sent reliever Carter Capps to South Beach, is coming off a season in which he missed about half the season (and almost half of 2012) with knee problems.

Morrison had been seeking a deal worth $2.5M while the Mariners had offered him $1.1M.

The only remaining arbitration item on the books for the Mariners now is that of Justin Smoak.
