UPDATE: Heyman has updated his story to say Colletti is getting a multi-year deal. He was told by one source that it could be a three-year contract which would carry him through 2015.

11:35 AM: According to Jon Heyman of, the Dodgers have signed general manager Ned Colletti to a contract extension.

No word yet on the exact details of the new agreement, but we heard last week that the two sides were discussing a new deal. Colletti’s current contract is guaranteed through this year and includes mutual options.

Colletti has served as Dodgers’ general manager since replacing Paul DePodesta after the 2005 season. The Dodgers enter play today at 75-70 on the year, one game behind the Cardinals for the second Wild Card spot.

Colletti said prior to last night’s game that Dodgers manager Don Mattingly will return next season regardless of what happens down the stretch. Mattingly’s contract runs through next year.
