Seattle Mariners legend Felix Hernandez will have a chance to pitch in 2020 after agreeing to a deal with the Atlanta Braves. Per Jon Heyman of MLB Network, the six-time All-Star signed a minor league contract with the Braves and will be able to participate in big league camp as a non-roster invitee. The contract is worth $1 million.

Felix Hernandez has been part of our Seattle and Mariners community since he came on the scene in Major League baseball at a teenager in 2005. He will be missed and will be remembered as one of the true loyal members of Seattle sports history. I really hope he makes the roster and The Braves make the playoffs and Felix gets a chance to pitch in the postseason in his career.
