Albany Times Union - Sunday - - SPORTS -

The Mets and Mariners have agreed to a block­buster deal that would bring eight-time All-star Robin­son Cano and stand­out closer Ed­win Diaz to Flush­ing, a source told MLB. com’s Jon Paul Morosi on Satur­day. Diaz’s med­i­cal in­for­ma­tion has been ap­proved, and Cano waived his no-trade clause and is ex­pected to join the Mets on Mon­day once his full med­i­cal re­view is com­plete.

The Mets will send out­fielder Jay Bruce, re­liev­ers An­thony Swarzak and Ger­son Bautista and prospects Jarred Ke­lenic and Justin Dunn to the Mariners, ac­cord­ing to the source. The Mariners are ex­pected to give the Mets $20 mil­lion to help off­set the re­main­ing money owed to Cano. horse rac­ing: Pat­tern­recog­ni­tion reg­is­tered a three-quar­ter­length vic­tory over true tim­ber in the $750,000 Cigar Mile Hand­i­cap at Aque­duct Race­track.
