Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was a guest on MLB Network Radio from the winter meetings and dropped an interesting tidbit about the Robinson Cano negotiations, saying that Cano’s representatives made New York a counter-offer to re-sign for $235 million.
Numerous reports throughout the offseason suggested that Cashman and the Yankees wouldn’t go beyond around $175 million for Cano and definitely wouldn’t go past $200 million, but it’s noteworthy that he was in theory at least willing to take $5 million less to stay in New York.
