Robinson Cano gets apology from negligent reporter

20 Comments

The Charlotte, N.C. reporter who claimed Robinson Cano tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs last month issued an apology Monday on his twitter feed.

Tordjman deleted the tweets that stated Cano was about to be suspended for 50 games by MLB. According to the New York Daily News, he’s made a contribution to the Robinson Cano Foundation as part of his apology.

Of course, Cano’s agent, Scott Boras, couldn’t resist a chance to chime in: “When journalists and media outlets act unprofessionally and negligently and submit false statements about a fine person and great player, we’re happy that the apology was issued.”

Yankees activate Gary Sanchez

The Yankees have activated catcher Gary Sanchez from the 10-day disabled list. To clear a roster spot for him, the Yankees optioned Kyle Higashioka to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Sanchez missed close to a month with a strained groin. His return is more than just a comeback from an injury, however. It’s a chance to start the season over in a sense, with the hopes of putting his dreadful first half behind him. The Yankees catcher hit a horrible .190/.291/.433 with 14 home runs, 41 RBI, and 36 runs scored in 265 plate appearances before going down. He’ll look to get back on track against the Mets tonight.
