Robinson Cano Returning To The New York Yankees?
The New York Yankees continue to be the most discussed team during the MLB's "Hot Stove" season. Earlier this month, the Bronx Bombers made a move to bring in former Auburn High School and Ithaca Bomber Tim Locastro from the Los Angeles Dodgers organization. Yesterday, the Yankees designated for assignment utility man Ronald Torreyes. The move likely ends his tenure with the organization. The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported a potential move involving the Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees. EliteSportsNY.com laid out the details below.
Brian Cashman had a chance to dump Ellsbury on the Mariners in exchange for former Yankee Robinson Cano. However, the deal sputtered out when New York asked for a big chunk of change to help pay off the $120 million Cano will make over the next five years.
Last season, Cano posted a .303 average with 10 homers and 50 RBI for Seattle in 80 games. He also served an 80-game MLB suspension for violating terms of MLB’s joint drug agreement. Ellsbury still has has two years at a guaranteed $47.3 million remaining on his deal
