The Seattle Mariners have hired Ty Van Burkleo as bench coach, Lee Tinsley has first base coach and offered outfielder Raul Ibanez arbitration.
Van Burkleo worked as Oakland's hitting coach last year on a coaching staff that included new Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu.
Tinsley, a one-time Mariner, coached in the Arizona system.
And Ibanez now has a week to accept or decline the offer of binding salary arbitration.
