With sailors in full fire mode, the Yankee had the idea of meeting Robinson Cano.
After finishing a mega deal earlier this season, Seattle reached out to Mets and Yankees for Kano, with the Yankee deal involving Jacobs Elsbury, according to a report.
Athletic, quoting sources, reported that sailors had reached the Yankees for a deal that would replace two of the biggest baseball deals. The conversations collapsed as the Yankees asked seafarers to include "significant cash" along with Elsbury.
The potential swap would attract two of the darkening baseball stars with a new start to put an end to their career.
For Cano, the 36-year-old is due $ 120 million over the next five seasons. He spent much of 2018, who was involved in a 80-game suspension for positive testing for a forbidden substance. He would not enter the second base for the Yankees, and the only real opportunity would be to make him a first boss and set hits. Cano hit .303 with 10 home tables in 348 broadcasts last year.
Yankees do not want to engage with one player in their DS, according to the report.
Elsbury has been marked by a catastrophe since signing a seven-year $ 153 million bargain that includes a full non-trading clause in 2014. The 35-year-old is hip surgery and missed my entire season. Agent Scott Boras said in October that he expects Ellsbury to be ready for spring training. He owes $ 47.2 million over the next two years.
Mariners General Manager Jerry D Dipoto also came to Mets for Cano, but this idea did not get much traction, according to the report. D Dipoto remains actively trying to send Cano as he continues to process Seattle. Yankees previously contacted sailors when they came into the hands of Arab left American James Paxton for his many prospects, including Justus Sheffield, earlier this month.
