Fargo, Henriquez agree on extension

Deal keeps Henriquez in Fargo until season 19

Just a few hours after signing Luis Martinez, the Fargo Dirtbags announced that they have agreed to a contract extension with franchise ace Javier Henriquez. Henriquez, The Bigs all-time wins leader with 230, signed a three-year $28.5 million extension with the third year of the deal being a team option. He will make $17.3 million next season, which includes a $10 million bonus, $6.2 million in season 17 and $5 million in season 18.

The extension will keep Henriquez with Fargo through season 18, meaning the ace pitcher will not be eligible for free agency again until he is 39-years-old.
