On Sunday, the Atlanta Braves completed a trade with the San Diego Padres for former All-Star Robinson Cano. The veteran second baseman was dealt for cash considerations, an obviously low price for someone who was once arguably the best infielder in baseball.

Interestingly, it’s the New York Mets who are still stuck paying his exorbitant salary.

According to The Athletic Mets writer David O’Brien, New York is still on the hook for all but the minimum portion of his $24 million salary. The Mets released Cano earlier this year, prompting the Padres to pick him up off waivers.

San Diego was in need of a second baseman at the time. Padres second baseman Jake Cronenworth was hitting just over .200 earlier this season, leading to the Robinson Cano pick up. However, shortly after that, the Padres 28-year-old infielder began picking it back up. During the month of June, Cronenworth hit .315 with three home runs, 24 RBI and 24 runs scored. That all but relegated Cano as useless in San Diego.

It certainly did not help that Robinson Cano was hitting under .200 during his time with the Padres either.

Meanwhile, the Braves have been looking to add some veteran leadership as well as infield help. Orlando Arcia has been playing second base for Atlanta but has struggled to produce. It’s not known whether Robinson Cano has anything left in the tank. But considering they essentially paid next to nothing and can see what he can do in the minors, there is not much of a downside.
