ESPN Deportes reported on Friday that Robinson Cano and the Seattle Mariners agreed to a 10-year, $240 million contract.
Pay per head services are aware that Cano had been his entire nine-year career with the New York Yankees. He finished fifth in American League MVP voting this past season after hitting .314 with 27 home runs and 107 RBI, all Yankee-highs. A two-time Gold Glove winner, the second baseman is a lifetime .309 hitter with 204 home runs and 822 RBI in 1,374 games.
The Yankees didn’t waste any time after losing Cano and decided to sign eight-time All-Star outfielder Carlos Beltran to a 3-year, $45 million contract.
Beltran hit .296 with 24 home runs and 84 RBI in 145 games for the Cardinals last season, the final one of a two-year, $26 million contract. The outfielder has batted .283 with 358 home runs and 1,327 RBI over 16 major league seasons. He spent his first 6 1/2 seasons in the American League with the Kansas City Royals and was also on the Houston Astros in 2004.
It’s has been a productive offseason for the Yankees despite losing Cano and Curtis Granderson to the Mets. They officially signed catcher Brian McCann to a 5-year, $85 million contract on Tuesday, finalized a 7-year, $153 million deal with former Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, added utility man Kelly Johnson with a 1-year deal and kept starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda in the Bronx one more year for $16 million.
