MAYAGUEZ, Puerto Rico -- New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano has hired Scott Boras as his agent, a source told ESPNdeportes.com.
The All-Star second baseman and Boras had a meeting Friday in San Pedro de Macoris, Cano's hometown, and they even played some ball before a crowd of onlookers.
Cano, who finished third in AL MVP voting for 2010, was previously represented by agent Bobby Barad.
In 2011 he will play the last year of his $30 million contract signed in 2008. New York has options for $10 million and $14 million in 2012 and 2013.
Cano, 28, has a .309 career batting average in six seasons with the Yankees. He hit .319 with 29 home runs, 41 doubles and 109 RBIs and scored 103 runs in 2010, receiving the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards.
