Update: Mariners, Felix Hernandez extension on hold (elbow concerns)

Quote:
Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez has agreed to a seven-year, $175 million contract that should be finalized before spring training, making him the highest-paid pitcher in baseball history, a person familiar with the contract details told USA TODAY Sports.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the contract is not yet official.

Hernandez was scheduled to earn $19.5 million in 2013 and $20 million in '14. Instead, his new contract will take effect this season and pay him a record average annual value of $25 million through 2019.

Seattle Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik and Alan Nero, an agent at Octagon Sports, which represents Hernandez, declined comment.

Hernandez's contract trumps CC Sabathia's seven-year, $161 million deal, signed before the 2010 season, as the richest ever for a pitcher. The average annual value of $25 million trumps the $24.5 million that Zack Greinke will receive annually from the Los Angeles Dodgers as part of a six-year, $147 million deal signed in December.

Hernandez signed a five-year, $78 million deal in January 2010, and backed up the Mariners' investment by winning the 2010 American League Cy Young Award, despite winning just 13 games. He produced a 2.27 ERA and struck out 232 in 249 innings, and extended his string of 200-strikeout seasons to four this season. He further established his place in Mariners lore by pitching a perfect game this past Aug. 15.

Hernandez, who turns 27 in April, made his major league debut at 19, and he'll still be just 33 when the contract expires.

Really? Really? They trade Ken Griffey Jr and Randy Johnson because they didn't want to sign them to big longterm deals. They refused to step up to the plate to keep A-Rod. Now they decide to go all-in? Why, exactly?

new management? as a die hard mariner fan i'm very happy about the extension, lot of years and money into a pitcher is dangerous but its nice to see the team keep a star for a change

Re: Mariners, Felix Hernandez agree to $175 million deal

I dont get it, King Felix is good, really really ****ing good, but i don't think he is the best pitcher in baseball, hell its debatable if he is even the best pitcher in his own division (Jared Weavers 85 million dollar extension looks like highway robbery now)... baseball contracts are just getting stupid, now Kershaw will trump this deal, and a couple of years from now Strasburg will trump his, it never seems to end.

They'll eventually have another strike and owners will try to get a hard cap.

Maybe they realized Felix games are the only thing selling tickets.

Really, who the hell wants to watch a Charlie Furbush game? Does Michael Saunders count as a marquee player?

Re: Mariners, Felix Hernandez agree to $175 million deal

So who will be the first 200 million dollar pitcher? Verlander? Kershaw? Price?
