The Mets are officially releasing Robinson Cano, he will pay the remaining $ 45 million

PHILADELPHIA (AP) —New York Mets released another player from base Robinson Canó before Sunday’s match against Philadelphia Phillies.

The move came a week after the fallen Cano was nominated for the award despite nearly $ 45 million remaining on his contract.

The Mets released the news in their notes before the game and after manager Buck Showalter met with reporters before Sunday’s game.

The 39-year-old Canó lost his job last season while serving his second suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. He scored 0.195 (8 for 41) with one home run, three RBIs and a paltry 0.501 OPS in 43 appearances for leading Mets NL East.
