Robinson Cano, Yankees Look Elsewhere To Spend Money

The Yankees are trying to schedule a meeting with Robinson Cano, but the two sides are still about $150MM apart, and the Yankees are looking at other targets in the meantime, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman writes. Those include Carlos Beltran, Jacoby Ellsbury, Shin-Soo Choo, Stephen Drew and Hiroki Kuroda. Other possibilities for the Yankees include Joe Nathan and Masahiro Tanaka. The Yanks don’t want to give Beltran more than two years, although it’s possible that the Mariners or Royals could give him three. Ubaldo Jimenez and Matt Garza aren’t currently on the Yankees’ radar, Heyman notes.
