Mariners give GM Zduriencik contract extension

SEATTLE (AP) The contending Seattle Mariners have rewarded general manager Jack Zduriencik with a multiyear contract extension.

The team didn’t release details of Zduriencik’s new deal Tuesday.

The 63-year-old Zduriencik has been Seattle’s GM since 2008. The Mariners haven’t reached the playoffs since losing in the 2001 AL championship series.

Seattle went into Tuesday night’s game against Texas in the races for the AL West and the wild-card spots. At 71-59, the Mariners had already matched their win total for all of last season.
