Peoria, AZ – The Seattle Mariners have agreed to one-year contracts with catcher Jesus Montero and pitchers Tom Wilhelmsen, Erasmo Ramirez and Stephen Pryor.
Montero, acquired last winter from the New York Yankees, batted .260 with 15 homers and 62 RBI in 135 games last year, his first full big league season.

Ramirez, a 22-year-old right-hander, made eight starts and eight appearances out of the bullpen for Seattle last year. He was 1-3 with a 3.36 ERA in his first taste of big league action.
Pryor made his major league debut last year and was 3-1 with a 3.91 ERA in 26 games.
