Robinson Cano called deadbeat dad by son's mom

New York Yankees free agent Robinson Cano is embroiled in a child-support battle with the mother of his young son, who is hoping to drive up his relatively low $600-a-month payments to $25,000.

The All-Star second baseman, who made $15 million this past season, is often late with payments that go toward raising his 3-year-old son, Robinson Miguel Cano Castro, the child’s  Dominican mom, Jackelin Castro, told ESPN.

The 30-year-old Cano insists he’s paying the agreed-upon amount. But Castro says the payments are inconsistent.

Castro says payments for May and June were made on July 2, and July and August payments were made on Aug. 15.

“It’s like a crumb because I [have] to chase after that money,” Castro told ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.”



Cano hopes to receive long-term contract offers in the $300 million range as a free agent next season. And, even though $600 is a lot of money in the Dominican Republic — where the average yearly salary is $2,370 — but it's hardly comparable to Cano's salary. Castro’s supporters believe the child deserves more.

Castro’s lawyer, Wendy Diaz, said Cano should be paying closer to $25,000 a month.

“I believe the money he gives to his son, when he does, is not enough to feed the dogs of Robinson Cano’s house,” said Diaz.

Castro did not sign the deal, according to the report, but Cano has been making the payments. “The intention of him and his advisers was somewhat to intimidate me,” Castro said.

“His living circumstances, financially, socially and culturally, are very, very far from what the child’s experiencing and gets,” Castro.




Cano said he’s giving plenty to his kid beyond the monthly stipend.

“I have gone above and beyond to care for my child, including an agreed-upon monthly stipend, a house, a car, insurance, school and other essentials for the baby and his mother, as well as many other things including toys and clothing,” Cano said in a prepared statement.

Whenever an innocent child is involved — common sense sometimes trumps contracts.

      Find Jackelin Castro's background before you throw Robinson Cano under the bus. Principal out-weighs money sometimes especially when it comes to gold-digger ex-wives and girlfriend's. No matter how much a woman gets they're never satisfied, mouth off and as in this case makes a good man look bad. She's not married to him she's not entitled to anything. If she's so concerned about Robby Jr., why are they still living in the Dominican Republic? She may be a hooker, drug user, alcoholic criminal if she can't find her way to Florida where women live off men. You can't live with them you can't live without them.

  4. Seems to me that the money he makes should not have anything to do with the outrageous amount she is asking for? Since when, does it cost that much money to raise a small child? Or does she now require a mansion for herself? I believe the second one to be her reason!

  5. In my state child support is based on the mans salary, a certain percentage. What he is paying is way under, if he can afford to play he can afford to pay. That small child should go to college some day and Cano has the means for him to do so. Does he need a mansion ......no......but should he allow his son to grow up without all the possibilities that his father can provide....um no. Also the article states that he is late on his payments, would he like being paid late every month?

  6. guy must understand... it is not court ordered he is paying "what" he can"when" he can... the child support in Dom.Rep. is not entirely base upon what a man earns, sometimes it is just a monetary amount advised by a Judge. in this case the mother of his child might have thought she was getting alot every month until she noticed that the currency is currently at $42.70 dominican pesos per $1.00 US dollar. Adding up to $25,620 dominican pesos... thats alot more than minimum wage which is $8,000DP = $187.34USD. i think she is being a tad bit greedy here!
