Seager among 10 inked to 2013 contracts

The Mariners announced on Friday that they have agreed to 2013 contracts with 10 players, including third baseman Kyle Seager.

The team agreed to deals with right-handed pitchers Blake Beavan and Chance Ruffin as well as left-hander Lucas Luetge.

Seattle also signed infielders Francisco Martinez, Justin Smoak and Seager, who hit 20 home runs and drove in 86 runs last season, both career bests.

Outfielders Julio Morban, Carlos Peguero, Eric Thames and Casper Wells also agreed to contracts for 2013.

The Mariners have now agreed to deals with 24 players on their 40-man roster. All players on the 40-man roster need to be signed or renewed by March 11.

Mariners pitchers and catchers will report to Peoria, Ariz., for the start of Spring Training on Feb. 12.
