NEW YORK (AP) — Jay Z, the new agent for Robinson Cano, had dinner Monday night with top officials of the New York Mets.

Chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon and general manager Sandy Alderson were among those there. The get-together also included sports agent Brodie Van Wagenen, but not Cano.

Cano, a five-time All-Star second baseman, is a free agent. He is seeking a 10-year contract for more than $300 million from the Yankees. Alderson said last week he doubted the Mets would offer any nine-figure contracts.

The dinner was initiated by Cano's side and was first reported by the New York Post. Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports formed a partnership this year with Van Wagenen's CAA Baseball.
