      Yankees lose Cano and Granderson but sign Beltran and Kuroda

      NEW YORK (AP) - Two people familiar with the negotiations say outfielder Carlos Beltran and the New York Yankees have agreed to a $45 million, three-year contract.

      The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday night because the agreement was subject to a physical and had not yet been announced. The deal was first reported by the New York Daily News.

      Beltran, 36, is an eight-time All-Star who played in New York for the Mets from 2005-11, when he was dealt to San Francisco. He signed a $26 million, two-year contract with St. Louis before the 2012 season and reached the World Series for the first time this year.

      He joins a crowded Yankees outfield, with holdovers Brett Gardner and Ichiro Suzuki, and newcomer Jacoby Ellsbury, whose $153 million, seven-year deal is pending.

      Earlier in the day, the Yankees learned All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano was leaving to sign with Seattle.
