A deal is done:

Our @ramonashelburne reporting that the Dodgers have reached an extension agreement with Don Mattingly; official announcement forthcoming.

— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) January 7, 2014

Ken Rosenthal reports that the deal will cover three seasons -- 2014-16 -- which means tearing up the one year left on his current deal. Money is not reported yet, but we don’t always hear about manager money for some reason.

The Dodgers have gone 260-225 under Mattingly. And, so far anyway, he has kept Yasiel Puig from murdering anyone. So yes, an extension appears to be in order.
