Mariners Cano reportedly agrees to deal with Mariners

Quote:
The Mariners landed a whopper of a free agent on Friday when five-time All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano agreed to a 10-year, $240 million deal, according to multiple reports.

The Mariners have not commented on or confirmed the reports, which originally came from Cano's camp through ESPN Deportes reporter Enrique Rojas, who also reported that Cano is to undergo a physical Monday in Seattle.

General manager Jack Zduriencik pursued Prince Fielder in 2011 and Josh Hamilton last year without success, but this time, he came up with a deal that will add a slugging left-handed-hitting second baseman to a young team looking to compete in the tough American League West.

The contract terms, if accurate, would tie Albert Pujols' current deal with the Angels for the third-largest contract in Major League history.

Alex Rodriguez signed a 10-year deal for $252 million with the Rangers in 2001, then reworked another 10-year, $275 million contract with the Yankees in 2008. Pujols signed with the Angels for 10 years at $240 million in 2012.

Philip Kossoy here...Boy that's a lot of money and a lot of years for a 31 year old second baseman who has made his living dumping balls over the short porch over at Yankee Stadium. Wait until he's 38 and jogging down the first base line on an infield out with a .250 batting average and 8 home runs in September. Seattle will be buried in that contract wont they!
