General manager Brian Cashman said yesterday that the Yankees made “a significant offer” to Robinson Cano recently, so today reporters naturally asked the second baseman about it and he said … nothing.
“I’m going to say the same thing that I said the other day, I’m just focused on playing baseball,” Cano said, via Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. “I’m going to let [agent] Scott [Boras] and the Yankees discuss that. I’m not an agent. I’m just going to focus on playing baseball.”
Fair enough, and it’s also worth noting that Cashman hasn’t exactly been outspoken about the negotiations except for a few brief quotes. When asked specifically if he rejected the “significant offer” Cashman mentioned, Cano declined to comment.
