The Seattle Mariners have reached one-year deals with a trio of pitchers, avoiding arbitration with closer David Aardsma, reliever Brandon League and left-hander Jason Vargas.

The Mariners announced the deals on Tuesday, leaving them with their entire roster under contract for the 2011 season.

League will get $2.25 million. The 27-year-old topped went 9-7 with a 3.42 ERA and led AL relievers in wins.

The 27-year-old Vargas set career highs in wins (9), innings (192 2-3) and starts (31) last season. He will get $2.45 million.
