Mariners, GM Jack Zduriencik agree to multi-year contract extension
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.
"We believe, with the efforts of Jack and staff, we are positioned to be a contender for many years to come.” #Mariners President Mather— Seattle Mariners (@Mariners) August 26, 2014
