Mets, Mariners making significant progress on Robinson Cano trade

Report New York Mets Seattle Mariners Still Working On Details of Mega Trade

Diaz, 24, is the prize in the deal.

There were conflicting reports Thursday about a possible Mets-Mariners trade involving Seattle second baseman Robinson Cano and closer Edwin Diaz, but it's now becoming clear that talks between the two teams are quite serious and could be close to an end.

Passan went on to note that Cano would have to waive his no-trade clause for any deal to be completed, but he is expected to be willing to do that.

The money issue appears to be the final hurdle before this deal is completed.

It will provide year round visa-free access to Sikh pilgrims from India after more than seven decades. He reiterated there is complete consensus in Pakistan for developing better relations with India.

Of course, Seattle's willingness to include Diaz is the biggest factor. That is a very expensive prospect buy, so it is fair to assume that the Mariners are likely assuming some of those Bruce/Swarzak contracts (say $20 million) while kicking in $40 million towards Cano's contract. The price in prospects is painful, but a move like this signifies that Mets' GM Brodie Van Wagenen is going to try and win this year. It's unclear how much of the $120 million remaining on Cano's salary that NY would have to eat, but Seattle is apparently willing to move stud closer Edwin Diaz as part of the deal.

Kelenic is viewed by many scouts to be a future star in the Major League Baseball. The two teams are closing in on an agreement, and we're just now beginning to understand the Mariners motivation in this trade. Or do they trade him along with Cano as a way to get rid of most, if not all, of the second baseman's contract? The Mets could then use some of the cash savings to try and sign a replacement starting pitcher in free agency, such as Dallas Keuchel or J.A. Happ. Consider this: In 2014, Forbes estimated the Mets were worth $800 million.

There are very few prospects the Mets should list as being off-limits in trade talks, especially if they're serious about bringing a victor back to Queens.

According to Sherman, the Mets believe the Mariners are still wrestling with the decision of whether to trade Diaz separately or attach him to a Cano deal.
