The New York Post has reported that the San Diego Padres are close to signing Robinson Cano shortly after being released by the Mets.
The Athletic also added that the two sides are expected to finalize a new contract on Friday.
Cano was released by the Mets last weekend after hitting a poor .195/.233/.268 with one home run across 43 plate appearances in 12 games this season.
If the Padres ultimately decide to sign the 39-year-old veteran, they will add additional depth at both the second base and designated hitter positions.
