Originally written May 17, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner told David Lennon of Newsday that the team has kept up contract talks with pending free agent Robinson Cano’s new agent, adding that the sides are “going to continue in the weeks to come to work through things and try to come to an agreement." Cano recently parted ways with agent Scott Boras in favor of a new agency headed by Jay-Z. While this was thought to increase the Yankees’ chances of re-signing him prior to free agency, discussions haven’t appeared to progress much since. Still, Steinbrenner is optimistic that New York will be able to reach a deal with Cano, as he says both sides want it to get done: "I know that Robby wants to be there, and Robby knows that we want him to be here. We want him to end his career here. I think to me, whether I'm right or not, that plays a big part in it regardless of who the agent is. But we're going to continue to try and push ahead and get something done. We want him to be a Yankee." Cano could be in line for a $200 million contract, as he’s been one of the game’s best hitters over the past several seasons. This production has carried over into the 2013 campaign, as the 30-year-old has hit .301/.345/.552 with 11 doubles and 10 home runs over 174 plate appearances.
