Mariners give manager Scott Servais a multi-year contract extension

On the day he received his contract extension — just a few weeks ago — general manager Jerry Dipoto said he couldn’t imagine doing his job without Scott Servais as the Mariners’ manager.

Now, he won’t have to consider that possibility.

On Friday, Dipoto announced he had given Servais a multi-year contract extension to remain the team’s field manager. Per club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

“It was probably the worst-kept secret in the game, if I got mine, he was going to get his,” Dipoto said. “As I said at my press conference, there was really never a time I envisioned doing this job without him managing. He knew that. We had a number of discussions. We thought this was the appropriate time, we had to work through some detail, but I don’t think he envisioned not being the manager. It’s about as easy as a discussion or negotiation gets.”

Dressed in his uniform, Servais was eager to get back on the field and start preparing for the second half of the season, starting Friday evening vs. the White Sox.

“What a day,” Servais said at a press conference that also featured Chairman John Stanton and CEO and President Kevin Mather. “To get the opportunity to stay here in a Mariners uniform is awesome. It’s been a crazy two and a half years. We’ve had some ups and we’ve had some downs.”

It’s been mostly ups in his third season as Mariners manager.
