Yankees won't re-sign Robinson Cano 'at all costs'

Rich Schultz

While the Yankees have said that they would love to re-sign Robinson Cano this offseason, Yankees president Randy Levine indicated that the team would be willing to let go of their star if the second baseman received a contract offer that the team would not want to match or exceed.

From ESPN:

"Robinson Cano is a great player. We will sit down and talk to him," Levine told Bloomberg Television during an interview Tuesday.

"Hopefully he's a Yankee. Nobody is a re-sign at all costs, but we want him back and we feel good about negotiating something with him. But nobody is a re-sign at any cost."

The 30-year old has long been considered the next face of the Yankees. Cano is having another outstanding season, hitting .308 with 26 home runs, 98 RBI and a .382 OBP, all team highs.

When asked about Levine's comments, Cano declined to respond.

"Let's just see what happens when the season is over," Cano told the Daily News. "There's nothing I can say. Right now, I'm not paying attention to any of that.
