Sources - Cy Young winner Robbie Ray, Seattle Mariners finalizing $115 million contract

Reigning AL Cy Young winner Robbie Ray and the Seattle Mariners are finalizing a five-year, $115 million contract with an opt-out after the third season, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Ray joins a Mariners team that surprised many last season by finishing second in the American League West with a 90-72 record.

Ray went from one of the worst starting pitchers in the majors in 2020 to the best in the American League in 2021, winning American League Cy Young honors after going 13-7 with a 2.84 ERA for the Toronto Blue Jays and leading the AL in ERA, innings pitched, strikeouts and WHIP. Ray had been a free agent after the 2020 season, but after leading the majors with 45 walks in 51⅔ innings between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Blue Jays and posting a 6.64 ERA, he re-signed with Toronto on a one-year, $8 million contract.
