Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Seattle Mariners

Well, I don’t think many around the baseball world saw this coming, but that huge contract the Mariners and Felix Hernandez agreed on may have hit a snag, according to Buster Olney.

The deal, which Drew covered the other day, would have seen the 26-year-old right-hander make $175 million over the next seven years. The extension would have officially been a five-year, $135.5 million deal that would start in the 2015 season. Hernandez’s current deal with the Mariners has two years remaining on the contract worth $39.5 million.

No word yet if this will cause Hernandez to miss any time this coming season.

Last season, Hernandez went 13-9 on the season with a 3.06 ERA, 2.84 FIP and 8.7 K/9 in 33 starts.

UPDATE: According to Bob Nightengale, the two sides still hope to get a deal done.

Sounds like the extension still may happen, but it could take a while.
