A relieved-looking Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik just walked into the media room here in Peoria and announced that, as expected, the contract extension for Felix Hernandez is now complete. A press conference has been scheduled for 2 p.m. PT tomorrow at Safeco Field. “We’re headed out right now and Felix will be headed out shortly as well,” Zduriencik said. “We’ll give you all the details at that time.” Zduriencik sent out congratultions to Hernandez’s agents, Scott Pucino and Wil Polidor, calling them “very professional” in how they handled negotiations. “I think it’s a great thing for the Seattle Mariners, it’s a great thing for Felix Hernandez and we’re looking forward to this guy being here for a long time, obviously,” Zduriencik said.
