The Mariners announced the deal Wednesday following a physical. Gutierrez became a free agent on Nov. 1 when the Mariners declined his option for 2014, but chose to return to Seattle for a sixth season hoping he can finally stay healthy.
Gutierrez won a Gold Glove in 2010 but has spent most of the past three seasons on the disabled list. He missed 106 games last season with hamstring problems that led to two extended stints on the DL.
If healthy, Gutierrez could solve one of Seattle's big concerns going into season about who will play in center field. The Mariners appear to have options at the corner outfield spots with the recent moves to acquire Logan Morrison and Corey Hart.
