Robinson Cano Hires Scott Boras

Robinson Cano has hired Scott Boras as his agent, according to Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com. The second baseman, who was previously a Bobby Barad client, met Boras in the Dominican Republic today.

Cano is under team control through 2013 under the four-year, $30MM extension he signed in 2008. He'll earn $10MM this year and the Yankees have options for 2012 ($14MM) and 2013 ($15MM). 

The 28-year-old has emerged as one of the best second basemen in baseball. He won his first career Gold Glove and second Silver Slugger last year, finishing third in the MVP voting. Cano hit .319/.381/.534 with 29 homers, 41 doubles and a career-high 57 walks.

Two other Yankee infielders have long-standing relationships with Boras. The agent negotiated Mark Teixeira's current deal with the Yankees after the 2008 season and was Alex Rodriguez's representative before A-Rod cut ties with Boras last fall. For MLBTR's list of Boras clients, click here.

This is only a story for non-Yankees fans. Cano could have signed with Jesus and the Yankees would still keep him in the Bronx.

I’m surprised there’s any left in the room this offseason.
