NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Yankees general manager Brian Cashman admitted on WFAN radio Thursday that a “significant” contract extension was offered to second baseman Robinson Cano.
Apparently it wasn’t significant enough.
“(Cano) is an exceptional, high-end player who is a season away from free agency,” Cashman told WFAN’s Mike Francesa. “Right now where that takes him and us remains to be seen. We’re not commenting any further than acknowledging that we made a significant offer and had some dialogue with his agent, Scott Boras. But other than that, there’s not much really to say.”
