Sources: Mariners To Make Hernandez MLB's Highest-Paid Pitcher

Sources say Mariners P Felix Hernandez has agreed to a 7-year, $175M contract that “should be finalized before spring training, making him the highest-paid pitcher in baseball history.” Hernandez was scheduled to earn $19.5M this season and $20M in '14. His new deal will “pay him a record average annual value” of $25M through '19. Hernandez' contract trumps Yankees P CC Sabathia's 7-year, $161M deal signed before the '09 season as the “richest ever for a pitcher” (USATODAY.com, 2/7).
