NEW YORK | Mets get Cano, Diaz and cash from Mariners in 7-player trade
NEW YORK — The New York Mets have acquired longtime star second baseman Robinson Cano and major league saves leader Edwin Diaz from the Seattle Mariners in a seven-player trade.
The Mets also are getting $20 million from the rebuilding Mariners in the deal announced Monday.
Seattle received outfielder Jay Bruce, reliever Anthony Swarzak and three prospects: former first-round draft picks Justin Dunn and Jarred Kelenic, plus right-hander Gerson Bautista.
In his first big move as the Mets’ general manager, Brodie Van Wagenen brought the 36-year-old Cano back to New York.
