Robinson Cano went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.
Cano came through with a solo home run off White Sox starter Jose Quintana in the fourth inning, but the M's offense was lacking overall. That homer represented both their only run and their only extra-base hit. For the season, Cano is slashing .305/.360/.543 with 22 homers and 60 RBI over 383 at-bats. Last season saw the second baseman frigid cold early before he heated up late, but he has offered a much more consistent cook in 2016. Jul 20 - 1:53 AM

Robinson Cano homered once and doubled twice but the Mariners lost to the Astros on Wednesday.

He finished 3-for-3 with two walks and two RBI. The home run was his 20th of the year, which is only one less than he hit in 156 games last year. Cano is now batting a fantastic .308/.366/.550 with 59 runs and 54 RBI.
Jul 6 - 11:59 PM

Robinson Cano hit a pair of solo home runs and a double in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Indians.

Cano smacked his first homer of the game in the first inning, taking a Josh Tomlin pitch for a ride to straightaway center. He would hit another solo shot in the eighth inning. The star second baseman then had a chance to possibly win or tie the game for the Mariners in the ninth, facing Cody Allen down 5-3 with two outs and a pair of runners aboard. Allen struck him out on a foul tip to foil the comeback attempt. Cano struggled mightily in the first half of the 2015 season, but has been nothing short of spectacular through two-plus months in 2016, slashing .298/.352/.592 with 16 doubles, 18 homers and 50 RBI across 245 at-bats. On the micro level, he has picked up seven hits in his last 12 at-bats.

Robinson Cano doubled and scored a run in Friday’s loss to the Rangers.

His sixth-inning double extended his on-base streak to a career-best 32 games. It’s also the longest active streak in the majors.
Jun 3 - 11:47 PM

Robinson Cano almost single-handedly dragged the Mariners to victory in Saturday's 3-2 win, 10-inning win over the Astros, homering twice and collecting four hits.

Cano has been absolute money in May and he continued to sizzle on Saturday. He hit a solo home run off Dallas Keuchel in the fourth inning. That was sweet, but his second home run was even more pivotal. After the Astros tied the contest at 2-all in the ninth inning, Cano came right back to swat a go-ahead solo homer off reliever Tony Sipp in the 10th inning. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. The star second baseman is now slashing a beautiful .306/.358/.621 with 11 homers and 32 RBI over 124 at-bats. Simply fantastic.
May 7 - 11:14 PM

Robinson Cano hit a three-run double in the ninth inning to lead the Mariners to a 6-3 win over the Astros on Thursday.

With one out in a tie game, Cano cleared the bases with a two-bagger against Astros closer Luke Gregerson. It was the latest achievement in what has been a fantastic start to the month of May for the 33-year-old. With Thursday's performance, Cano is 12-for-18 (.667) with three doubles, a home run, six RBI and five runs scored in five games this month. Historically his worst month, Cano is working to change that in the span of a few days.
May 6 - 1:01 AM

Robinson Cano was a monster in Tuesday's 11-1 win over the Astros, hitting a grand slam and finishing with six RBI.

Cano's first two RBI came in relatively modest fashion, as the star second baseman notched a two-run single off Astros starter Dallas Keuchel in the fifth inning. He would do considerably more damage in the seventh. In that frame, Cano stepped up with the bases juice and connected for a grand slam against Astros reliever Michael Feliz. He ended the contest 2-for-4. He has yet to click into one of his traditional hitting grooves and owns a .238 batting average, but the power has been there in spades this season. Cano is slugging .538 and has whacked seven homers for the month of April. He is up to 21 RBI after Tuesday's huge showing.
Apr 27 - 2:42 AM

Robinson Cano's third hit of the day was a three-run homer in the top of the 10th, leading the Mariners to a 10-7 win over the Indians on Thursday.

Cano drove in four runs in all, and he also walked. He already has six homers this season. Last year, he didn't hit his sixth until his 81st game of the year on July 7. In 2014, he hit his sixth homer in his 79th game on June 30.
Apr 21 - 4:52 PM

Robinson Cano went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Cano shouldn't feel too poorly about his dismal day. As a team, the Mariners collected just four hits -- none of which went for extra bases. The star second baseman already has four homers, but has struggled outside of those bombs. He is just 6-for-33 (.182) through the first week-plus of the 2016 campaign.
Apr 13 - 1:07 AM

Robinson Cano homered twice and plated five runs Wednesday in a win over the Rangers.

Cano opened the scoring with a two-run shot off Colby Lewis in the first. He finished what he started with another jack in the ninth inning off closer Shawn Tolleson. In between, he drove in a run by walking with the bases loaded. Cano now leads the majors with four homers and seven RBI. The veteran enjoyed a brilliant second half last season (.331 with 15 HR and 49 RBI) and that seems to have carried over into 2016.
Apr 6 - 5:15 PM

Robinson Cano launched a solo homer in the Mariners’ season-opening loss to the Rangers on Monday.

It was a laser beam, as the ball had an exit velocity of 110 mph. Cano enjoyed a big second half last year and followed that up with a strong spring training. His stock faded a bit in fantasy drafts this spring anyway, but he could be poised for a huge year.
Apr 4 - 7:10 PM

Robinson Cano singled and ripped another Cactus League homer on Monday against the Royals.

It's Cano's seventh longball this spring -- only Maikel Franco has more -- and overall he's batted .388 with a 1.321 OPS. The torrid spring has been a carryover from the second half last season for the veteran second baseman, as Cano batted .331/.387/.540 after the All-Star break.
Mar 28 - 7:46 PM

Robinson Cano went 2-for-3 with a double and a triple in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

Both the two-bagger and the three-bagger were Cano's first such hits this spring. The star second baseman underwent hernia surgery during the offseason but is looking to start off a bit stronger in 2016 than he did in 2015. He hit just .251/.290/.370 in the first half of last year's campaign, but came on with a blistering .331/.387/.540 in the second half to salvage his overall numbers.
Mar 16 - 7:49 PM

Robinson Cano hit a two-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League contest against the Angels.

Cano finished 1-for-3 on the day. The veteran second baseman underwent hernia surgery after last season and is expected to be fully healthy for the start of the season. He'll look to improve on a 2015 season in which he posted a .779 OPS that was his lowest output since 2008.
Mar 5 - 7:23 PM

Mariners manager Scott Servais indicated Thursday that he will bat Robinson Cano third this season.

Cano struggled in the first half last season while hitting third before rebounding in the second half after moving to the cleanup spot. However, it appears the plan is to put the second baseman back in the No. 3 spot and Nelson Cruz at cleanup. "From an analytics point of view," Servais conceded, "they say you should hit your best hitter second. (Pause) I think Robby Cano should hit third. That’s where I think he’s comfortable, and we don’t want to get out ahead of ourselves too far."
