Rzepczynski guaranteed $11M in 2-year contract with Mariners

SEATTLE (AP) Reliever Marc Rzepczynski is guaranteed $11 million in his two-year contract with the Seattle Mariners.

The 31-year-old left-hander will receive $5.5 million in each for the next two seasons under the deal announced Saturday.

Right-hander Casey Fien's one-year contract calls for a $1.1 million, which is not guaranteed. He would get a minimum of $175,000 in termination pay if released.

Catcher Jesus Sucre's deal, announced Monday, calls for a salary of $630,000 in the major leagues and $315,000 in the minors.

Rzepczynski was 1-0 with a 2.64 ERA in 70 games for Oakland and Washington this year and has made at least 70 appearances in each of the last three seasons. The 33-year-old Fien was 1-1 with a 5.49 ERA in 39 games for Minnesota and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
