The Mariners and general manager Jack Zduriencik have agreed to a multi-year extension, the team announced Tuesday.
Zduriencik’s contract was set to expire after this season, which is his sixth with the Mariners. The team’s press release did not specify the exact length of the extension.
“Since Jack took over after the 2008 season, we have been building toward our ultimate goal, which is to win the World Series,” Mariners president and COO Kevin Mather said in the press release. “We believe, with the efforts of Jack and his staff, we are now well-positioned as an organization to be a contender for many years to come.”
At 71-59, the Mariners are on pace for their best record in Zduriencik’s six seasons. Seattle is 430-510 (.457) under Zduriencik.
