New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano got a great gift from Jay Z for his birthday, but there’s just one little problem, it’s against player rules according to MLBPA. And now Jay Z is being investigated.
Section 5(B)(5)(a) of the Players Association regulations states: “No Player Agent or Applicant shall provide, cause to be provided or promise to provide, any money or any other thing of value to any player, or any person related to or associated with such player, the purpose of which is to induce or encourage such player to use or continue to use any person’s or firm’s services as a Player Agent, Representative, or Draft Advisor.
The watch is a limited-edition Shawn Carter Classic Fusion watch made by the Swiss company Hublot. Jay Z was on his “Magna Carta Tour” and had performed a concert in Antwerp the night before Cano’s 31st birthday celebration on Oct. 22.
