Robinson Cano Signs With Roc Nation Sports

Jay-Z‘s “full-service entertainment company,” called Roc Nation, recently launched a new athletic management wing to their brand. It goes by the name of “Roc Nation Sports,” and their first order of business was to sign Yankees‘ star Robinson Cano (in a partnership with the more established firm, Creative Artists Agency).

It’s definitely a good move for Cano, since Roc Nation Sports’ partner CAA has currently negotiated over $1.1 billion in MLB contracts since 2011, with four of those contracts exceeding $100 million. ¬†Those kinds of numbers make them the most successful sports agency in the game at the moment. ¬†And with Cano’s contract set to run out at the end of the year, he should be in line for a monster payday from any MLB team that has enough cash to throw at the All-Star second baseman, should he fail to agree on an extension with the Yankees before the end of the season.

The announcement came in the form of a press release from Roc Nation, which you can check out in full here.
