Seattle Mariners announce extension for General Manager Jack Zduriencik

Seattle Mariners President & Chief Operating Officer Kevin Mather announced today that the club and Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jack Zduriencik have agreed to a multi-year contract extension.

Zduriencik is completing his sixth season in 2014 as head of Mariners baseball operations. A 35-year veteran in Major League Baseball, Jack worked with four organizations (Mets, Dodgers, Pirates and Brewers) prior to joining the Mariners.
