SEATTLE - First baseman Justin Smoak asked Seattle for $3.25 million in salary arbitration, and the Mariners countered at $2,025,000 on Friday.

Logan Morrison, acquired from Miami during the off-season, requested $2.5 million and was offered $1.1 million.

Both were eligible for arbitration for the first time, and if they don't settle they will be scheduled for hearings next month in St. Petersburg, Fla. Smoak made $514,000 last year and Morrison $491,500.
