The deal can be up to more than 14 years and guarantee Rodriguez $400 million.
This means that Rodriguez is going to be locked up in Seattle long-term.
It’s clear that the Mariners see him as more than just a building block for the future.
They see him as the man to carry the torch for many years to come.
One Mariners insider pointed out an interesting and celebratory fact, at least if you’re a Mariners fan, that he won’t be leaving to go play for the New York Yankees anytime soon.
It looks like Rodriguez is going to be staying in Seattle long-term.
Cheers to never having to watch Julio Rodríguez play in pinstripes during his prime 🍻

This is a good move for the Mariners.
Rodriguez is an exciting young player with a great attitude and great energy that is contagious and rubs off on his teammates.
He’s not only extremely talented, but he’s also a guy who like to keep things loose and have fun while he plays baseball.

When it’s finalized, it’ll be one of the largest contracts signed in recent memory.
Rodriguez is the guy you want to bank on if you’re the Mariners.
He’s the favorite the earn AL Rookie of the Year honors.
He’s batting .269 with 20 home runs and 64 RBI this season and he’s the one that is leading the charge for this young, upstart Mariners team.
