Robinson Cano has been with the Yankees since 2005. He’ll be turning 31 in October and will become a free agent at the end of the season. Cano has been expected to be a career Yankee, but things might change for him.
The Yankees have to be considered the favorites to sign him, but the organization could be becoming less attractive to Cano. The team is old, injury-depleted, and aren’t really contenders for the postseason. Another team could offer him a chance at another World Series run.
It’s also been reported that Alex Rodriguez is telling Cano to test free agency. We all know how fond the Yankees are of A-Rod, so I’m sure this will only make things worse (if the rumors are true).
We’ll see where Cano ends up. I’m sure Jay Z and Roc Nation Sports will make huge news if Cano lands somewhere else.
