Yankees-cano-gets-high
New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano is scheduled to hit free agency at the end of the year. He is looking for a deal that would be historic. Cano is looking for a 10-year, $305 million contract in free agency, MLB Injury News' own Ray Bureau writes. It looks like Cano may hit a quiet market at the start of free agency with his asking price. The Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers are unlikely to make "major plays" in free agency for second baseman Robinson Cano, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. The Dodgers aren't afraid to spend big time money, but Cano's demands may be a little too rich for their blood. Sherman says that the Texas Rangers, Philadelphia Phillies, Washington Nationals, Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners could make a play for Cano. The Phillies would only make a move for Cano if they moved Chase Utley to third base. Sherman has an interesting tidbit of information regarding how teams view Cano: "Conversely, more teams are swearing off the mega-deals, seeing what a low-percentage play they are (think A-Rod, Albert Pujols, etc). In addition, there are questions within the industry about Cano’s body type, hustle and leadership skills, and — fairly or unfairly — enough uneasiness about his two degrees of separation from PEDs due to his closeness with A-Rod and Melky Cabrera. Cano has always denied PED use." Even though Cano is looking for $305 million over 10 years, it is extremely unlikely that he gets that kind of contract. On the season, Cano has hit .313 with 27 home runs and 106 RBI's.
