PEORIA, Ariz. – Edwin Diaz is enjoying his first big-league camp. This time last year he was getting ready to report to minor-league camp as a starting pitcher.

Robinson Cano’s 2016 Season Was a Flashback to His Yankee Days

Handing out a lucrative, multi-year contract to a player is always risky for an MLB organization, no matter how much of a no-brainer it appears to be. That risk factor goes through the roof when it’s a 10-year, $240 million deal, like the one Robinson Cano signed prior to the 2014 season.
