Cano Headed West, Granderson Stays In NY
By: Randy Cruz (@cruzr83)
In Breaking News of the day, two Yankees are headed elsewhere -- one remaining East and the other going far out West.
The major news is that 2B Robinson Cano has agreed to a deal with the Seattle Mariners worth $240 million for 10 years.
Cano plans to return to Seattle this weekend for a physical that will take place on Monday.
This deal puts Cano tied for the third largest MLB contract in history, behind Alex Rodriguez's two contracts of $275 (Yankees) and $252 million (Rangers), and Albert Pujols' 10 year, $240 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Curtis Granderson, who most expected not to return since the Yankees agreed to terms with Jacoby Ellsbury earlier in the week, agreed to a 4 year, $60 million contract with the New York Mets.
This is definitely an immediate upgrade for the Mets as they needed help with power. Granderson hit 41 HR's in 2011 and 43 HR's in 2012.
