Yankees make "significant" offer to Cano

Stephen Dunn

The Yankees have made a "significant" offer to Robinson Cano.

The Yankees have made a "significant" offer to second baseman Robinson Cano, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Cano's camp says that they are "thinking about baseball," and are adamant about not negotiating a deal in-season. Cano is represented by Scott Boras, so it comes as no surprise that they are playing hardball with the Yankees.

Boras said that Cano will not do anything that would distract him from his performance and leadership of the Yankees in 2013.

With Cano's contract expiring at the end of the 2013 season, it comes as no surprise that the team is eager to get a deal done with the all-star second baseman.

The Yankees may be receiving a blessing in disguise by not being able to negotiate with Cano, as he is on the wrong side of 30 and will be looking for a lot of money for a long amount of time. The Yankees should know better than anyone that this can be recipe for disaster.

The sides appear to be far apart in discussion at the moment, despite the Yankees making such a good offer. It remains to be seen whether or not the two sides can reach a deal that works for both parties, but it should be a while until we know either way.
