Report: Mariners willing to pay Robinson Cano $230-$240 million

Robinson CanoThe Seattle Mariners are said to be a major contender for Robinson Cano, and one report states that they are willing to pay the second baseman $230-$240 million.

ESPN Deportes’ Enrique Rojas reported on Thursday that Cano is headed to Seattle and that the Mariners are willing to pay him $230-$240 million.

Ken Rosenthal says Cano asked for $240 million over 10 years, but the team’s offer to him was for less than $200 million. He says Cano is headed to Seattle for negotiations.

We previously told you that the Yankees will not go over $200 million to keep Cano. Their offer to him was said to be for seven years and around $160 million.

The Yankees signed Jacoby Ellsbury to a seven-year deal worth $153 million guaranteed earlier this week. We can tell you with confidence that the Yankees are willing to move forward without Cano if he receives a larger offer elsewhere and accepts it.
