Report: Mariners reel in AL Cy Young winner Robbie Ray, who turns breakout year into 5-year deal

Robbie Ray’s dazzling breakout season already landed him an AL Cy Young Award. Now it has earned him a five-year, $115 million deal with the up-and-coming Seattle Mariners, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan.

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 tell ESPN.

The lefty who solved longstanding walk issues with the Toronto Blue Jays and turned in a stellar 2021 season will earn $23 million per year, besting fellow breakout free agent Kevin Gausman — who signed with the Blue Jays on Sunday.
