The team posted a video on Twitter of general manager Jerry Dipoto announcing the signing at the club's holiday party.
Analysis: Finding a way to re-sign Iwakuma was a priority for Seattle entering the offseason. But reports surfaced earlier this month that Iwakuma and the Dodgers had agreed to a contract, leading the Mariners to trade for left-handed starter Wade Miley from Boston. But Iwakuma's deal with the Dodgers was never finalized and the 34-year-old was suddenly available again.
