Report: Pirates to extend Hurdle's contract

February 18, 2013
The Altoona Mirror

BRADENTON, Fla. - Clint Hurdle is going to get a chance to finish a turnaround hes started with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

A person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press the Pirates are planning to extend the third-year manager through the 2014 season with a club option for 2015. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement is expected on Wednesday, when owner Bob Nutting addresses reporters.

The agreement was first reported by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Hurdle is 151-173 in two seasons with the Pirates. He was entering the final season of a three-year deal he signed when he took over for John Russell in December, 2010. Pittsburgh went 79-83 in 2012, tied for the franchises best record in 20 seasons, though the Pirates went through a late swoon that dropped them out of playoff contention.
