Robinson Cano had two RBI singles in four at-bats Monday as the Mariners won against the Rays.

Cano plated the Mariners' first run in the first inning, then added insurance in the eighth. The second baseman had gone hitless in three consecutive games. He's still batting a disappointing .253/.295/.337 with one home run and 13 RBI.
May 25 - 10:02 PM

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and a walk in Thursday's loss to the Orioles.

Cano was also caught stealing for the third time this season. The singles are nice to see, as his numbers are down across the board. If the season finished today, his .264/.305/.356 batting line would be the worst for his career. Thankfully for Cano and the Mariners, the season does not finish on May 21. Given that he hit .314/.382/.454 in 2014, this likely isn't a Safeco problem. Cano's merely in a bit of a rut. His numbers will right themselves over time.
May 21 - 6:37 PM

Robinson Cano went 3-for-5 with two runs scored as the Mariners beat the A's 7-2 on Saturday.

In another power slump, Cano has just one homer and nine RBI through 30 games. On the other hand, he does have 11 doubles already. Just like he did last year, he's sure to come around. He didn't hit his second homer of 2014 until May 21.
May 10 - 1:31 AM

Robinson Cano went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run but the Mariners lost in walk-off fashion, 6-5, to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Cano had been slumping to start the season, coming into the night 4-for-29 (.138) with two singles and two doubles. The Mariners are certainly happy with the power display on Tuesday. He took David Huff yard with a runner on in the first inning and doubled off of Juan Nicasio in the sixth. Cano, now in the second year of a 10-year, $240 million contract, tied a career-low with 14 home runs last season.
Apr 15 - 2:08 AM

Robinson Cano hit his first home run of the spring, finishing 2-for-4 Monday afternoon versus the Angels.

Cano homered in the bottom of the eighth off of Joe Smith. He hit no home runs in Cactus League play last spring, so there's that. He's otherwise been hitting well, carrying a .364 average (16-for-44). After hitting at least 25 home runs from 2009-13, Cano hit only 14 last year, so the Mariners are hoping for a bit more pop from the second baseman in 2015.
Mar 30 - 6:24 PM

Robinson Cano (family) is expected to return to Mariners camp Friday.

And he should make an appearance in Saturday's Cactus League game. Cano headed home to the Dominican Republic this weekend following the death of his grandfather.
Mar 9 - 11:29 AM

Robinson Cano left Mariners' camp to travel to the Dominican Republic following the death of his grandfather.

There's no timetable for his return, but the M's will obviously give him as much time as he needs. Cano won't need too many spring at-bats in order to get ready for Opening Day.
Mar 8 - 11:36 AM

Robinson Cano went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored Thursday versus the Padres.

Cano singled and scored in the first inning, then doubled and scored in the third. The 32-year-old's power dropped off last year, his first in Seattle, but posted robust numbers in the average and on-base percentage departments. The Mariners are hoping to see him get back into the 20-homer club this season, the second year of his ten-year contract.
Mar 5 - 6:37 PM

Robinson Cano told reporters Tuesday that he dropped 13 pounds over the offseason.

Cano also assured the gathered media that the fractured pinkie toe he suffered during MLB's All-Star Series in Japan has fully healed. The 32-year-old second baseman batted .314/.382/.454 with 14 home runs and 82 RBI in 157 games last season for the Mariners. It was the first year of a 10-year, $240 million deal.
Feb 24 - 5:23 PM

The Mariners announced Friday that Robinson Cano's fractured right pinkie toe is fully healed.

The second baseman broke his toe during the All-Star Series in Japan back in November. Cano will play a few games in the Dominican Winter League next week and will enter spring training with no limitations.
Jan 9 - 2:38 PM

Robinson Cano will be sidelined for the remainder of the All-Star Series game against Samurai Japan after being diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right pinkie toe.

Cano left Saturday's contest in the eighth inning after being hit by a pitch. He's expected to need 3-4 weeks to recover and should resume full baseball activities in mid-December. He'll be fully healthy and ready to go for spring training.

Robinson Cano is heading for a precautionary X-ray on his right pinkie toe after getting hit by a pitch during the eighth inning of Saturday's All-Star Series game against Samurai Japan.

Cano is expected to be fine, they just want to ensure that he didn't break anything. He stated his desire to return for Game 4 on Sunday, though there's a strong likelihood that he'll be held out. The MLB squad hasn't fared well thus far in the showcase, dropping each of the first three contests, including being no-hit by four Japanese hurlers.

Robinson Cano knocked in a pair of runs with a single, but the Mariners were routed by the Blue Jays 10-2 on Tuesday.

Cano's single temporarily gave the Mariners a 2-1 lead in the third, but it was lost and then some when the Jays hung a seven-spot in the fifth inning. With the Royals winning on Tuesday, the Mariners are three games out of the second Wild Card. Cano has done all he can, as he is hitting .320/.386/.462 with 14 home runs, 82 RBI, and 10 stolen bases.
