Robinson Cano's MLB career isn't over just yet. According to a report, he'll soon be signing with an NL contender.
Cano will reportedly be signing a deal with the San Diego Padres.
The 39-year-old was released by the New York Mets last weekend.
"The Padres are expected to finalize Canó's deal tomorrow, according to sources."
"Padres taking a gamble on Cano"
"Cano to San Diego is happening"
"On an off day no less, where we have little to distract us. This is gonna be fun."
"Sooooo is Canó's main function to be a mentor for Tatis? Is he another good friend for Manny, maybe to help him get over a potential Hosmer deal? Is Kim such a pop up merchant now that they're willing to move Crone to SS stick Robbie at 2B? DH/1B platoon with Hos/Voit? Just, why?"
The Padres are 20-12 on the season and 1.5 games back of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.
It'd be quite the story if Cano revived his career and helped the Padres become one of baseball's top teams.
