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."
Mar 4 - 11:23 AM

Robinson Cano said Thursday in Mariners camp that he is "98 percent" recovered from October hernia surgery.

In other words, he should be fully healthy when the Cactus League schedule gets underway next week. Cano played through discomfort for much of the 2015 season and produced his lowest OPS (.779) since 2008. The veteran second baseman will try to ascend back to the mountaintop of fantasy second basemen in his third year in the Pacific Northwest.
Feb 25 - 10:40 AM

Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said Monday that a report about Robinson Cano's unhappiness in Seattle "did not come from Robbie and that was not at all reflective of how he felt."

The report, which came from John Harper of the New York Daily News, said a "long-time friend" of Cano "love to somehow find his way back to New York" due to his unhappiness in Seattle. Cano's agent, however, called Dipoto after the report came out and the GM left the conversation thinking Cano feels "quite the opposite." It seemed like a wild rumor at the time and ultimately Cano almost surely isn't going anywhere.

"A long-time friend" of Robinson Cano told John Harper of the New York Daily News that Cano is unhappy in Seattle and would "love to somehow find his way back to New York."

Cano signed a 10-year, $240 million free agent contract with the Mariners a couple winters ago and has posted relatively disappointing OPS marks of .836 and .779 in his first two seasons. Former major leaguer Andy Van Slyke recently criticized the 33-year-old second baseman of "loafing" and getting coaches and executives fired. This has quickly turned into a public relations mess, but Cano is doubtful to be traded this winter unless an opposing team can come up with something really creative. He is still owed a ridiculous amount of money ($192 million), and the M's want to compete in 2016.

Robinson Cano underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair a sports hernia.

Cano played through the injury during the second half. He'll need six weeks of recovery time, but should be good to go by spring training.
Tue, Oct 13, 2015 02:00:00 PM

Robinson Cano went 2-for-5 and hit a three-run homer against the A's on Saturday.

Cano has hit .332 with 15 homers and 49 RBI in 69 games during the second half of the season, even while playing through a hernia that's going to require surgery in the offseason. If the Comeback Player of the Year award was for bouncing back during a season, Cano would be a shoo-in.
Sun, Oct 4, 2015 02:07:00 AM

Robinson Cano is set to undergo surgery on October 13 to repair a sports hernia.

Cano has been able to play through the injury since mid-July. He'll be completely recovered and ready to go for the start of spring training next season.
