Robinson Cano: “I don’t have any regrets” about leaving Yankees

Robinson Cano has a $240 million contract, his new team has a better record than his old team, and he’s hitting .329 with an .865 OPS that’s slightly above his career mark.

So not surprisingly when asked at a charity event about leaving the Yankees to sign with the Mariners this offseason Cano replied: “I don’t have any regrets about what I did.”

Cano also said some encouraging things about the struggling Yankees, including: “I mean, you gotta understand that some of their guys are getting hurt, and it just means they’re not the best. I don’t count them out. They’ve got a good team.”

In his absence the Yankees turned first to Brian Roberts and then to Stephen Drew at second base, but have gotten a combined .242 batting average with nine homers and a .679 OPS from the position.
