The Washington Nationals have given a three-year contract extension to president and general manager Mike Rizzo, the team announced Saturday.
Rizzo's contract was set to expire at the end of this season.
"We are thrilled that Mike will continue to lead our club," Nationals principal owner Mark Lerner said in a statement. "He guided us through the early years of building this franchise into what it is today -- a perennial contender that brought a World Series championship home to Washington, D.C., last season.
"I look forward to continuing our strong working relationship for years to come."
