Via Jerry Crasnick: MLB is investigating whether Jay-Z violated the union’s regulations by giving Robinson Cano a watch valued at $33,900 during his recent birthday party in Germany. Cano hired Jay-Z back in April and any gift in excess of $500 must be disclosed in writing. Obviously agents are strictly prohibited from giving a gift to a player (or the family of a player) who is not their client, but that isn’t an issue here. Jay-Z could be subject to some kind of discipline (fine?) if he is found to be in violation of the regulations, but Robbie is in the clear as far as I know.
