Washington Nationals sign general manager Mike Rizzo to a multiyear extension

The Washington Nationals are giving Mike Rizzo a chance to finish what he started as the team’s longtime president of baseball operations and general manager. The club has signed Rizzo to a multiyear extension. The deal comes with Rizzo — who put together the roster that won the 2019 World Series — overseeing a top-to-bottom rebuild that he believes is nearing completion. Details were not released, but the 62-year-old Rizzo said he plans to remain in Washington for “a long, long time.”
