The Cano to the Dodgers rumors have come full circle in a day, as chronicled by MLB Trade Rumors. Seems though there are no discussions and really that makes sense. I like Matt Kemp – he’s younger than Cano and his baseballreference.com compares him to Nick Markakis as a hitter – but why would the Yankees be so eager to dump Cano for him? Yeah, if the Dodgers threw in a young pitcher, it might be hard for the Yankees to turn down, but I can’t see the Dodgers paying such a high price for a player coming off a down year.
Most likely, the Yankees focus will remain on free agents rather than trades.
