The New York Yankees are not just willing to make an offer to Robinson Cano, they've already put one on the table.

General manager Brian Cashman said today — first on a radio interview, and then to a group of writers — that the Yankees made a "significant offer" to Cano. Previously, owner Hal Steinbrenner had indicated that the Yankees were willing to make an offer, but Cashman made it clear that an offer was already extended.

"I thought I was restating Hal's stuff," Cashman said. "If I said a little bit more, that's all I'm saying."
