There are still a few steps before the trade gets the official announcement treatment.

The Mets and Mariners are still “on track” to announce the trade that would bring the Mets second baseman Robinson Cano and relief pitcher Edwin Diaz, per a report from Ken Rosenthal, who says the official announcement will come early next week.

Rosenthal notes that some of the things remaining between now and that official announcement are the completion of physicals, approval from the commissioner’s office on that money coming to the Mets from the Mariners, and Cano’s official approval to waive his no-trade clause.

There haven’t been any changes to the reported players being sent to Seattle in exchange for Cano and Diaz: Jay Bruce, Anthony Swarzak, Jarred Kelenic, Justin Dunn, and Gerson Bautista. The only detail that still isn’t publicly know is the amount of money that the Mets will get from the Mariners, as Andy Martino—who had reported it was $60 million—tweeted an update that it might be significantly less than that, possibly as a result of the inclusion of Bruce’s and Swarzak’s salaries in the overall calculation.
