The Seattle Mariners have re-signed Hisashi Iwakuma after an agreement with the Los Angeles Dodgers broke down.
The deal includes a one-year contract for 2016 and options for the 2017 and 2018 seasons, but financial terms weren't announced.
"We said from the start that Kuma was a priority for us," Jerry Dipoto said in a statement. "Obviously, the developments from the last few days allowed us to get back in the game. It's a credit to our ownership -- to Howard Lincoln, to Kevin Mather, to our entire ownership group -- that we were able to get aggressive and find a way to bring Kuma back to the Mariners. We're all thrilled. This is a big move for us."
The Dodgers and Iwakuma struck a deal on Dec. 6, a pact reportedly for three years and roughly $45 million, but the contract was never completed as his physical was reportedly a problem.
