SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Mariners have continued their offseason makeover by finalizing a one-year contract with free agent outfielder Nori Aoki with an option for the 2017 season.

Seattle announced completion of the deal Thursday after Aoki passed an extensive physical. The sides had agreed on a deal pending the exams, which took place Thursday morning. The physical was closely watched after an injury-filled 2015 season for Aoki in San Francisco.

Aoki was limited to 93 games due to a broken right leg and a severe concussion in the second half of the season. San Francisco, which turned down a $5.5 million option on Aoki last month, said Aoki was healthy and that the injuries did not play a role in the decision to decline the option.
