Ex-Met Jason Bay Agrees to Join Mariners, Daily News Reports

Dec. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Outfielder Jason Bay agreed on a contract with the Seattle Mariners, less than a month after the New York Mets bought out the final season of his four-year, $66 million contract, the New York Daily News said.

Bay, 34, needs to pass a physical before his deal with the Mariners is completed, the Daily News reported without saying where it got the information. In Seattle, he would join an outfield that includes Michael Saunders, Franklin Gutierrez, Casper Wells and Eric Thames.

Bay signed with the Mets after an All-Star 2009 season with the Boston Red Sox and never regained that form in New York. He had 26 home runs in three years with the Mets, a total he either equaled or surpassed in five of his six Major League Baseball seasons prior to joining the team.

The Mets and Bay agreed last month to buy out the final season of his contract, making him a free agent. Bay played college baseball at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, and resides in Kirkland, Washington, about 12 miles east of Seattle.
