Robinson Cano signs 10-year contract with Seattle Mariners

Robinson Cano has signed a 10-year, $240 million contract with the Seattle Mariners. News of Cano to the Mariners is crisscrossing the internet, with an official news posting already made to the main MLB team page. According to a report from Friday morning (Dec. 6), all that is left is for him to pass a physical on Monday (Dec. 9) for the deal to go into place.

Team To Sign Major Free Agent Pitcher?

An official announcement has not been made by general manager Jack Zduriencik just yet, but that is common practice for the franchise when signing free agents. While there are still a lot of rumors floating around about the negotiations and just how much the New York Yankees offered, this looks to be a done deal.

Adding a new starting second baseman likely indicates that corresponding moves will also be coming at some point during the offseason. One of them will have to be a decision on what to do with Nick Franklin. Franklin played a lot of second base for the team last season as Dustin Ackley got moved to the outfield. He could get traded now, especially after the team signed free agent Willie Bloomquist to come on as a utility guy off the bench.

The contract that Robinson Cano has signed is reportedly the third most lucrative in MLB history, showing just how much the team has invested in the All-Star. Adding a guy who hit .314 with 27 home runs and 107 RBIs last season is definitely the "big splash" that the front office of Seattle promised. Now the team will likely work to add more pieces to enter the 2014 MLB season as true contenders in the American League.
