The Mariners have signed 34-year old righty swinging outfielder Jason Bay to a 1-year deal. Bay played in 70 games for the Mets last year and he was 32 of 194 (.165 avg, .536 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 8 homers, 20 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. Bay has now played in 1,210 games in his first 10 years in the majors and he is 1,158 of 4,299 (.269 avg, .848 OPS) with 707 runs scored, 211 homers, 734 RBIs and 92 stolen bases. At least the Mariners didn’t invest a lot of money in Bay, so they can ditch him if things don’t work out. With the Mariners’ offense as inept as it is, it doesn’t hurt to take a flier on Bay as he used to be a big time run producer.
