Mariners give GM Jerry Dipoto, manager Scott Servais multiyear contract extensions

On Wednesday morning, less than 12 hours after a dramatic 4-0 win over the Houston Astros, the Mariners announced that Dipoto and Servais have been given multiyear contract extensions.

“I believe that this puts us in a position to achieve our mission and goal as the Seattle Mariners to win championships, and to do everything we can to win on the field,” Mariners chairman John Stanton said before Wednesday’s game.

It’s the second extension for the duo and provides leadership stability in the front office and on the field that hasn’t been apparent since the late 1990s and early 2000s. After joining the Mariners before the 2016 season on three-year contracts, Dipoto and Servais were given three-year extensions in July 2018.

“I never really doubted that we would not be here,” Dipoto said of finishing the rebuild. “It’s something that we laid out post-2018 season. And when we laid it out, we had to stay disciplined to what we were doing regardless of the outcomes. That’s what we owed the organization, and that’s what we owed the players that we were … investing this time and space in, and all the staff members that we brought on who helped us create this as a group.“
