Yankees Make ‘Significant Offer’ to Robinson Cano, Cashman Says

The New York Yankees made “a significant offer” to Robinson Cano, who hit a career-high 33 home runs last season for the Major League Baseball team, said General Manager Brian Cashman.

“He’s an exceptional high-end player who is a season away from free agency,” Cashman, who declined to discuss Cano’s reaction to the offer, said in a video interview on the team’s website. “Where that takes him and us remains to be seen.”

The 30-year-old second baseman is starting his final season under contract with the Yankees, who picked up his $15 million club option in October. Cano batted .313 with 94 runs batted in last year.
