According to Jon Heyman of FanCred, David Lennon of Newsday and Andy Martino of SNY TV there isn’t expected to be an official announcement on Friday of the blockbuster trade between the New York Mets and Seattle Mariners.
The players in the deal have been confirmed by multiple reports, the Mets are sending RHP Anthony Swarzak, OF/1B Jay Bruce, RHP Gerson Bautista, RHP Justin Dunn and OF Jarred Kelenic to the Mariners for 2B Robinson Cano and RHP Edwin Diaz.
While the players are set in stone, Heyman is also reporting that the remaining issue in the trade is money.
Cano is making $120 million for the next five seasons, while Bruce is on the hook for two more years at a total of $28 million and Swarzak is getting $8.5 million in his final year. Diaz is under team control through the 2022 and will be arbitration eligible for the first time next offseason.
