The Mariners are reportedly close to dealing 8-time All-Star Robinson Cano and All-Star reliever Edwin Diaz to the Mets, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.
Seattle would be taking on the rest of Bruce's contract, worth $28 million, and reportedly pay some of what's left of Cano's contract. The difference between Bruce's contract & Cano's is about $92 million.
Cano came to Seattle in December 2013, signing a 10-year deal worth $240 million. In five seasons with the M's, he's hit .296 with 107 home runs and 411 RBI. Cano also went to three All-Star games representing Seattle.
The Mariners drafted Diaz in the third round of the 2012 MLB Draft. He made his way through the minors and made his MLB debut June 6, 2016. In two-plus seasons with the M's, he recorded 109 saves and 301 strikeouts with a 2.64 ERA.
Jay Bruce turns 32 in April. He's been in the majors since 2008. Bruce is a 4-time All-Star.
Jeff McNeil played his first year in the majors in 2018. He hit .329 in 63 games with the Mets. He turns 27 in April.
New York drafted Jarred Kelenic in the first round of the 2018 MLB Draft, sixth overall. He was once the top hitter on the US under-18 national team. Scouts say he could play center field all the way to the majors. Kelenic hit a combined .286 with two teams in rookie ball.
The Mets drafted Justin Dunn in the first round in 2016, 19th overall. He's a right-handed starter who threw in A and AA ball this season. Dunn made 24 starts and went 8-8 with a 4.22 ERA.
