Josh Hamilton, Mariners discuss deal worth up to $25 million per year: Report

Friday December 7th, 2012

The Seattle Mariners and free agent outfielder Josh Hamilton are discussing potential three-year contracts worth up to $25 million per season, Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported on Thursday. The deals being thrown around sit in the range of $20 million to $25 million per year, Rosenthal reported.

The Mariners and Texas Rangers have been the two most active teams in pursuit of Hamilton, who left this week's Winter Meetings without a contract in hand. Mariners president Chuck Armstrong told The Seattle Times that the Mariners were still interested in Hamilton, but they were waiting to see where other free-agent dominoes fall.
