We can finally forget all the drama and confusion that surrounded Francisco Liriano‘s status for the past month-plus…he’s officially a Pirate now. Liriano passed his physical and is on the roster (Vin Mazzaro was outrighted to AAA to clear a spot). His contract is unique due to his broken right humerus, and honestly it’s better (and by that I mean less risky) for the Pirates...
NOT SO FAST
Felix Hernandez and the Mariners $175 million dollar deal has reportedly been placed on hold due to concerns over the structural soundness of his elbow.
After hemming and hawing for a few days, the Seattle Mariners and ace right-hander Felix Hernandez have reportedly finalized the seven-year, $175 million contract the two sides essentially agreed to last week. Over the weekend it was reported that the deal was being held up because of concerns about the soundness of Hernandez’s pitching elbow.

Baseball players seem to suffer the most bizarre injuries imaginable.Take new Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano for example.

We alerted you to the framework of the $175 million deal that Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners had agreed on a few days ago.

It appeared as if Felix Hernandez was set to become the highest paid pitcher in all of baseball just a few days ago, but that has been put on hold due to an “elbow issue.” The Seattle Mariners had reportedly agreed to a seven-year, $175 million contract extension with King Felix on Thursday, giving him a huge bump in pay from the 5-year, $78 million extension the two sides agreed...
The St. Louis Cardinals enter spring training this week with another star player entering the final year of his contract just two years after the Albert Pujols contract circus. But the Cardinals suddenly have leverage in these negotiations they never got with Pujols.
Adam Wainwright will be a free agent at the end of the season if he and the Cardinals can’t agree on a long-term...
The Seattle Mariners reached an agreement on what amounts to
a seven-year, $175 million contract extension with right-hander Felix Hernandez
last week. However, the deal was delayed when an elbow issue was discovered during an MRI taken on Friday. While the Mariners are seeking protective language
in the agreement, a deal is “still on track” and may come in the next day or...

Finalizing his record extension with the Mariners hit a bit of a snag, but Seattle and Felix Hernandez have made their new pact official, guaranteeing King Felix $175 million over the next seven seasons in the Pacific Northwest. It seems risky to lock up so much money to a starting pitcher, but it’s clear that Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik wants to make his ace the centerpiece of...
