M’s Willing To Pay $240 Million To Cano?
(1090 The Fan) — Robinson Cano flew to Seattle and met with Mariners officials in person on Thursday, according to Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com.
However, there are conflicting reports about the amount of money Seattle may or may not be willing to offer to Cano.
In Rojas’ report, Cano was informed by the Mariners that he could be rewarded with a $240 million contract should he put on a Seattle uniform in 2014. Based on reports from the New York Yankees camp, the Mariners’ offer trumps the Yankees’ — by about $70 million.
A few hours after that report, FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal tweeted that Cano had asked Seattle for a ten-year $240 million deal, but Seattle’s offer did not exceed $200 million.
On Tuesday, representatives from both sides met, but Thursday’s visit to Seattle was reportedly Cano’s first time face-to-face with front office officials.
