Jay Z Under Investigation For Gifting Watch To Robinson Cano

The Major League Baseball Players Association is launching an investigation into Jay-Z for his recent gift to his primary signing, Robinson Cano. The MLBPA prohibits agents giving gifts to athletes in order to either persuade them to sign with the agent or to keep them on board.

On October 22nd, Jay went to Belgium to attend Cano’s birthday and brought him a $33,900 Hublot watch. Seeing how Cano was already signed with Roc Nation, it doesn’t make sense that Jay would try to persuade Cano to sign after the fact, but the MLBPA sees it as fishy behavior anyway.

Jay hasn’t been in the sports agency business for long, but he’s gotta have attention to detail if he wants this gig to last.
