His departure from New York comes days after the Yankees signed outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury away from the Red Sox.

Cano was the first major client for rapper Jay-Z, who has become a sports agent.

News of Cano’s deal reached Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia on Friday. “Couldn’t be happier for him and for us,” Pedroia said. “We don’t have to face him 19 times a year.”
