The Seattle Mariners have been shuffling the deck, but it looks like they'll keep their ace.
On the eve of exchanging salary figures for arbitration, right-hander Felix Hernandez has agreed to a multiyear contract with the team, pending a physical, a source with direct knowledge of the talks told ESPN.com's Keith Law on Monday.
The amount or length of the deal were not immediately available.
Can't think. Too busy smiling. Can't think...
Note: Absolutely imperative to remember that a "multiyear contract" may be as short as two seasons. This is absolutely good news, but we won't know if it's super awesome Pants-Off-Dance-Off news until we hear about the length.
Additional note: Of course a two-year deal wouldn't really make much sense. Sooooo...
