Robinson Cano is no longer a Yankee. After nine seasons with the Yankees, Cano compiled 204 home runs, a .304 career batting average, and 5 all-star appearances. Let’s not forget about that world series ring he acquired back in 2009. Now, he’s decided to take his talents to Seattle, where he can fall into “nobody cares what I do” land.

Sign on the dotted line! Brian McCann is headed to the Bronx for $85 million over 5 years. His contract will include a 6th year option, bringing the grand total to $100M if he so chooses.

The New York Yankees have said that CC Sabathia has a grade 2 left hamstring strain and won’t pitch again this season. Supposedly, CC injured it during his last start but pitched through it. One would have to guess that he kept the injury secret from management, because I doubt Girardi would have kept him out there if he had known. This puts the nail in the coffin for the Yankees season (that’s if you still thought they had a chance).

Alfonso Soriano last played for the Yankees a decade ago. Prior to the 2004 season, the Yankees dealt Soriano and Joaquin Árias to the Texas Rangers for Alex Rodriguez. Now, with the Yankees struggling offense, the club is in desperate need of some pop in the lineup and are looking to bring our old friend back.

From George King of the NY Post:

According to a person familiar with the talks, the Cubs will pay the bulk of what is left on Soriano’s contract. He makes $18 million this year and the same for next season.
