New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano is leaving New York to join the Seattle Mariners.
Sources within the Yankees organization tell NY1’s Tom McDonald Cano is leaving the Bronx after agreeing to a 10-year, $240 million contract, pending he passes a physical on Monday.
The source says the Yankees' last offer to the All-Star second baseman was for seven years and $175 million. However, they never heard back from Cano’s people after the Mariners made their offer.
Cano has never played with a team other than the Yankees, coming up as a rookie in 2005 at the age of 22.
In his nine seasons in pinstripes, Cano annually averaged 24 home runs, 97 runs batted-in, with a .309 batting average.
Cano, whose agent is music mogul Jay-Z, became a free agent following the 2013 season.
Meanwhile, center fielder Curtis Granderson is moving from the Bronx to Queens.
Multiple sources report the 32-year-old Granderson has inked a new, four-year contract worth $60 million with the Mets.
In four seasons with the Yanks, Granderson averaged 28 homers per year, but never hit higher than .262.
Granderson arrived in the Bronx from Detroit after the 2009 season.
