NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Free agent Robinson Cano is leaving the NY Yankees for the Seattle Mariners, FOX 5 News confirms.

The All-Star second baseman and the Mariners agreed to a 10-year deal worth $240M on Friday.

The Yankees were willing to agree to a 7-year, $175M deal that was rejected by Cano's representatives, sources tell FOX 5 News.

Music mogul and sports agent Jay Z reportedly brokered the deal with the Mariners.

Last month, Yankee general manager Brian Cashman said the Bombers could be outbid for Cano:

"I feel very comfortable that we'll firmly compete for the player, but the value we put on him, the value someone else puts on him could be vastly different, and if it is we'll lose him."

Cano was initially seeking more than $300M for 10 years.
