PEORIA, Ariz. (AP)—Ken Griffey Jr. has decided to return to the Seattle Mariners.
“He’s coming home. … I can’t begin to tell you how ecstatic we are. He is, too,” Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik said in confirming the deal Wednesday night.
Zduriencik called Griffey “arguably one of the greatest athletes to ever play in the Seattle area.”
The 39-year-old star’s contract is for one year and believed to be worth $2 million in base salary, plus incentives.
So, what does this mean for Griffey's fantasy value?
