Robinson Cano’s name has been further dragged into the Biogenesis scandal, but the Yankees have been assured by Major League Baseball that Cano is not a primary suspect in the league’s investigation, according to a person briefed on the situation. The latest news isn’t expected to deter the Yankees from negotiating a long-term contract extension with Cano.

As first reported by ESPN’s “Outside the Lines,” MLB has information from Biogenesis — the now shuttered South Florida clinic at the center of the potential scandal — that includes the name of Sonia Cruz, who is the spokeswoman for Cano’s RC24 Foundation.

Cano’s friendships with teammate Alex Rodriguez and former Yankee Melky Cabrera, both of whom are reportedly named in the Biogenesis documents and who admitted to using illegal performance-enhancing drugs in the past, already had him answering questions about Biogenesis even before this latest report.

“I don’t know about that,” Cano said. Asked whether he would speak with Cruz about the story, he said: “No, it has nothing to do with me. I am focused on the team and winning games.’’

Cruz didn’t return a call and email from The Post yesterday.

In an interview with “Outside the Lines,” she said: “I met with a nurse who works for the clinic, but I met her outside the clinic just to talk to her about a diet program they have for women. I never went through with it once she explained what it was. I thought it was just a diet/nutritional thing, but it was diet, nutrition, pills and stuff.”

MLB spokesman Pat Courtney declined comment.

While baseball’s investigation team will look into Cano’s potential connection with Biogenesis as a matter of due diligence, a second source said on the condition of anonymity that a case to be made against Cano was “flimsy.” ESPN, which also acquired Biogenesis documents naming Cruz, reported that the $300 she allegedly owed the clinic last July and August is consistent more with a weight-loss regimen than with PEDs.

A-Rod, the Yankees’ Francisco Cervelli and Milwaukee’s Ryan Braun are among the players with a far more tangible connection to the Biogenesis allegations and therefore have occupied far more of the investigators’ attention.
