Robinson Cano’s father thinks son will re-sign with Yankees

Robinson Cano‘s dad Jose threw to his son in Monday night’s Home Run Derby at Citi Field in New York. And he spoke to reporters about his son’s impending free agency before Tuesday’s All-Star Game:

“I am confident that the Yankees are going to come up with something good in the end,” Jose Cano said. “I hope that he can stay here. He can be the leader, like a captain. Robinson’s very smart, but quiet. He’s not going to talk too much. He talks when he needs to talk. That’s a good thing for being on a kind of team like the Yankees. He’s doing everything straight.”

“[Robinson] is the one who’s going to make a decision in the end,” added Jose. “We can say yes, we can say no, we can say we don’t know, but he’s the one who’s going to make the decision in the end.”

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported a couple weeks ago that “there‚Äôs a very good chance” Cano will hit the free agent market in November. The 30-year-old is batting .302/.386/.531 with 21 home runs and 65 RBI through 95 games this season for the fourth-place Bombers while earning a salary of $15 million.

Cano has made $58M in his nine years with New York. He recently signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports.
