Robinson Cano to Seattle Mariners rumor: Robinson Cano is close to a deal with the Seattle Mariners, according to Jon Heyman:
mariners are close to a deal with Robinson Cano— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) December 6, 2013
Cano, the free agent second baseman who has spent his entire career with the New York Yankees, met with the M's last night, though reports indicated that meeting ended badly and a deal was looking unlikely.
According to Heyman, the deal will be for "at least" $225 million. Seattle was apparently ready to go 9 years, $225 million last night, but Cano wanted $250-260 million, which resulted in negotiations breaking down.
There will, of course, be updates on this as it develops.
UPDATE -- Enrique Rojas writes that the M's and Cano have agreed on a 10 year, $240 million deal.
