By  | 

SEATTLE (AP) - The Mariners will keep shortstop Jack Wilson in Seattle through 2011.

The team announced a new two-year contract Friday with the 30-year-old shortstop. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Wilson was acquired from Pittsburgh on July 29, along with pitcher Ian Snell, for infielder Ronny Cedeno, catcher Jeff Clement and three minor league pitchers.

In 31 games Wilson hit .224 with one home run. He missed extended time due to a sore hamstring and bruised right heel.
