The Seattle Mariners and High Desert Mavericks (High Class A; California League) will remain partners for two more years, as the pair agreed to an extension of the team’s player-development contract through 2012.
Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager Jack Zduriencik announced today the extension of the PDC.
“We are very pleased to have completed a new agreement with High Desert,” said Zduriencik. “The commitment from the organization and their fans made this an easy decision. Now that we have secured all of our minor league affiliates through at least the 2012 season, we can continue to develop the future of the Mariners organization.”
The High Desert Mavericks reached the California League playoffs for the second straight year, losing to Rancho Cucamonga in the first round.
“The relationship we have developed with the High Desert organization has been a very positive one for all those involved,” said Pedro Grifol, Mariners Director of Player Development. “Our players will continue to be in an environment where they can succeed personally and collectively.”
