The New York Yankees have begun internal discussions about the future of second baseman Robinson Cano, who is due to become a free agent following the 2013 season.

New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano isn't set to become a free agent until the end of the 2013 season, but according to Jack Curry of YES, the team's front office is already in discussions about what his future is with the team.

Cano, who will be 32 when his contract expires, is earning $14 million in 2012 and set to receive $15 million in 2013. He will be worth much more than that on the open market, which has Yankees GM Brian Cashman in a tough situation. The team would like to keep its payroll under $189 million.

Cashman did not tell Curry to what extent they will pursue Cano in getting him extended before his contract plays out.
