Seattle Mariners LHP Marco Gonzales agrees to 2-year contract
The Seattle Mariners have agreed to a two-year, $1.9 million deal with left-hander Marco Gonzales, according to published reports.
Gonzales, who isn't eligible for arbitration until 2021, will make $900,000 next season and $1 million in 2020. The team's leader in victories in 2018 also can earn bonuses that raise his pay.
Gonzales, who turns 27 in February, went 13-9 with a 4.00 ERA in 29 starts in his first full season in the majors. He owned a 12-5 record entering August before a neck injury hindered him, and he later missed nearly three weeks because of the ailment.
Gonzales isn't eligible to become a free agent until 2024.
