The Seattle Mariners have signed general manager and Jack Zduriencik to a multi-year contract extension, the team announced on Tuesday.

Before being hired by the Mariners in October 2008, Zduriencik worked in the Brewers' organization for nine years.

Seattle has gone 430-510 and failed to make the playoffs during Zduriencik's tenure. This offseason, the Mariners signed former Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano to a $240 million contract.

Seattle opened Tuesday at 71-59, leading the Detroit Tigers by half a game for the Wild Card spot in the American League.
