    The Seattle Mariners and third baseman Kyle Seager have agreed to a seven-year, $100 million deal that includes an option for an eighth year, a league source confirmed to ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick.

    The deal was earlier reported by Yahoo! Sports.

    Seager, 27, set career highs in batting average (.268), home runs (25) and RBIs (96) last season, his fourth with the Mariners.

    In 2014, Seager made his first All-Star team and won a Gold Glove Award, also a first in his career.

    Great deal. Would've been even greater last year, but locking up an All-Star, Gold-Glove 3B who puts up 25 HRs, is a baseball rat and who doesn't have a whole lot of way to debilitate his game...oh yeah, and he's entering his prime?

    The Yankees are paying Carlos Beltran more per year than we're paying Seager.
