Robinson Cano signs with Jay-Z’s sports agency

NEW YORK (AP) — Rapper and recording producer Jay-Z is expanding into sports representation and has signed New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano away from Scott Boras to be a client.

Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, and his Roc Nation company have partnered with CAA Sports to form Roc Nation Sports. Cano changed his listed agent with the Major League Baseball Players Association from Boras to CAA Sports’ Brodie Van Wagenen.

Cano can become a free agent at the end of the World Series. Boras usually prefers that his clients become free agents to increase bidders and maximize their values, so the change could increase the chance Cano will reach a new agreement with the Yankees during the season.
