Report: Seattle Mariners Felix Hernandez house catches on fire

  • David Whitlock

Potentially tragic news out of Bellevue, Washington, as according to CBS Sports “Eye on Baseball” writer Dayn Perry and a tweet from Seattle Times Mariners beat reporter Geoff Baker, the home of former American League Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez caught fire on Monday evening.  Here’s the Tweet along with a follow up (via @gbakermariners):

No reports of injuries or foul play, although this is breaking news and surely in the hours and days to come, more details will be provided.  According to Baker’s Blog, Hernandez paid $3.2M for the 5-bedroom house within the last year of signing a contract extension.



Felix Hernandez finished a lackluster (by his standards) 2013 campaign at 12-10 with a 3.04 E.R.A.  In his eight full seasons in the big leagues, he has recorded 30 starts or more in all of them and been named to 4 of the last 5 All Star teams (ironically not named in 2010 when he one his Cy Young).  The 27-year-old Venezuelan native has played his entire career in Seattle and is signed through 2019 at $22M or more each season going forward.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
