Mariners Felix, Mariners complete contract extension

Quote:
Felix Hernandez has reached agreement on a contract extension with the Mariners, general manager Jack Zduriencik said Tuesday afternoon, and will be in Seattle for a 2 p.m. PT news conference Wednesday.

Zduriencik said details of the contract would be announced at the press conference (to be streamed live on MLB.com), but a source confirmed to MLB.com that the basic agreement is for seven years and $175 million, with some new language written in that would protect the Mariners if Hernandez misses a season with elbow problems.

Hernandez has two years and $40.5 million remaining on his current contract, but those final two years will apparently be replaced by the new deal, which extends through 2019 and will make him the highest-paid pitcher in Major League history.

Hernandez was in Peoria to take his physical on Tuesday along with the rest of the Mariners pitchers and catchers, but planned to immediately return to Seattle for the official signing and news conference at Safeco Field.

"We're headed out right now and Felix will be headed out as well and we'll give you all the details at that time," Zduriencik said.

"I would send along my congratulations to [Hernandez's agents] Scott Pucino and Wil Polidor. They were very professional in working this agreement with us. I think it's a great thing for the Seattle Mariners and it's a great thing for Felix Hernandez. We're looking forward to this guy being here for a long time, obviously."
