The Mariners have made it known to free agent Robinson Cano—the longtime Yankees second baseman—that they are willing to offer him a contract for 10 years and upward of $230 to $240 million, according to a report by Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes.
That overall number is in the ballpark with the figure that Cano's camp recently indicated was the new asking price—about $250 to $260 million but over nine years—after it initially started out at $300 million-plus.
The Yankees, meanwhile, have remained steadfast in offering no more than $170 million over seven years, per Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. They likely believed that Cano would be hard-pressed to find a significantly better offer on the market.
