Robinson Cano is officially with the Mariners, and he will be introduced at a 6 p.m. ET press conference in Seattle.
Cano’s deal is for $240 million over 10 years, and the money is spread evenly at $24 million each season. The contract includes award bonuses and a full no-trade clause.
Cano is the fifth player to sign a contract for $200 million or more (Rodriguez, Pujols, Votto, Fielder). The previous record for a second baseman was $110 million for Dustin Pedroia. The previous high average annual value for a second baseman was $15 million for Ian Kinsler.
In other words, Cano’s getting a bunch of money, but you probably knew that already.
