M’s General Manager to get at least one more year
The Seattle Times recently reported that the team will bring back embattled General Manager Jack Zduriencik for at least one more year.
According to the Times, it was recently rumored that Zduriencik’s contract was extended to 2014 — not 2013 as originally reported. The rumor was confirmed Tuesday as President Chuck Armsrtong told the Times Zduriencik would indeed be back.
The Seattle Times reported that the deal is not an extension, but the remainder of the current contract he is under.
