SEATTLE (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that free-agent second baseman Robinson Cano and the Seattle Mariners have reached agreement on a deal.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because there was no official announcement.
ESPN reported earlier Friday that Cano and the Mariners had agreed on a $240 million, 10-year contract pending a physical.
Cano had spent his entire career with the New York Yankees and was a five-time All-Star. He played in 160 games last season and hit .314 with 27 homers and 107 RBIs.
