Dad: Cano not going

TAMPA — With all due respect to his beloved father, Robinson Cano sounded as if he'll leave the negotiating to Scott Boras.

Jose Cano, bullpen coach for the Dominican Republic World Baseball Classic team, spoke to reporters Monday afternoon as his son took batting practice.

Talk turned toward Robinson's impending free agency, and Jose said he didn't think his 30-year-old son would feel "comfortable going to another city."

He added he hoped Robinson would remain a "Yankee forever," then suggested a six- or seven-year deal would do the trick.

The younger Cano, after the workout, dismissed his father's remarks, though with a big smile and a laugh.

"That's what he says," Cano said.

Cano is in the final year of his contract — he'll make $15 million this season — and is all but certain to hit the free-agent market after the season.

Phils: Lannan strong

BRADENTON — Phillies fifth starter John Lannan looked sharp, combining with four relievers on a one-hitter in a 5-0 victory over the Pirates.

Lannan gave up a two-out double to Travis Snider in the first and walked two in three scoreless innings. The right-hander has allowed one run in five innings in his first two starts.

"I just felt like I had a good rhythm," Lannan said. "My fastball felt good and I had a good mix with (Humberto) Quintero back there catching. I wish I wouldn't have walked the two guys. Other than that, though, I was happy."
