With both sides willing to extend talks past an initial Saturday deadline, the Washington Nationals and Ryan Zimmerman agreed to a six-year deal on top of the two-years left he has on his existing contract.
“It’s a relief,” Zimmerman told MLB.com’s Bill Ladson. “It’s a lot of stuff to work out. It’s a big commitment. Things like that don’t get done quickly. Both sides worked tirelessly to get this stuff done. Now, we don’t have to worry about it anymore.”
There are little other details available as of yet, but we will keep you up to date.
