King Felix will rule Seattle for the next seven years, according to a USA Today report.
The star right-hander is about to sign a contract with the Seattle Mariners worth $175 million, making it the most lucrative contract for any pitcher.
Hernandez, 26, had anchored the Mariners rotation since breaking into the league in 2005 at age 19. He went 13-9 with a 3.06 ERA 2012, the seventh full season in which he's made at least 30 starts. His best season came in 2010, when he posted a 2.27 ERA and won the American League Cy Young Award.
