Yankees want Cano out of winter ball

Robinson Cano has been in the Dominican Republic playing winter ball. However, the Yankees have other plans.

From Enrique Rojas:

"The Yankees sent a letter to Cano to stop playing, but they didn't offer many details or reasons," said Alfredo Griffin, the Estrellas Orientales general manager.

Cano told Estrellas teammates, however, that the Yankees didn't want him to aggravate a calf injury that is still healing.

The Dominican winter league baseball tournament began its round-robin playoff series Wednesday. Cano hit .389 in nine games during the regular season. He was hitless in his first postseason game Wednesday. (ESPN)

Better safe than sorry.

The Yankees also told Melky Cabrera to sit out of winter ball earlier this month, so this isn't out of the ordinary.

I actually watched a bit of a Dominican League game. Cano looked like crap. He just didn't have much pizazz. Sorry for the lame word. Just couldn't think of another one to get the point across :)
