Felix Hernandez to skip WBC
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Felix Hernandez says he won't pitch for Venezuela in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.
Hernandez and the Mariners are working on a $175 million, seven-year contract that would make him the highest-paid pitcher in baseball.
Wilfredo Polidor, who represents the 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner, told Lider earlier on Friday that the Mariners think if Hernandez were to go to the WBC it would be ``a very big risk for the negotiations.''
