Robinson Cano is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday due to hamstring tightness.

It's an ailment he's been nursing off and on all season and the M's finally decided to give him a rest. Cano should be back in there on Monday versus the Mets. Willie Bloomquist is handling second base Sunday.
Jul 20 - 2:04 PM

Robinson Cano went 4-for-6 with a walk in Friday's 16-inning game against the Angels.

It was Cano's second four-hit game of this year and 26th overall. He's taken over the AL lead from Adrian Beltre with a .340 average in 359 at-bats.
Jul 19 - 3:25 AM

Robinson Cano went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer Saturday against the A's.

Cano has 11 hits in his last four games, pushing his average up to .334 for the year. The power numbers haven't been what anyone expected, but he's been one of the AL's best players anyway. He currently trails only Jose Altuve (.339) and Adrian Beltre (.338) in average.
Jul 13 - 12:58 AM

Robinson Cano finished 3-for-5 in Thursday's 4-2 loss versus the Twins.

The big-money import limped through a sluggish start to the season, but has been dynamite since May. Cano's .327 batting average ranks No. 4 in the American League, and his .387 OBP is 30 points above his career mark. The second baseman is on pace for 92 RBI and 83 runs. He's hit only six homers, however.
Jul 11 - 1:34 AM

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's pummeling of the Astros.

It was the second straight game the Mariners beat up on the Astros, and it was the second straight night Cano was right in the middle of the action. The second baseman had an RBI single in the first inning to start the scoring, and his two-run double in sixth opened the floodgates. Cano's .323 batting average is fourth-best in the American League among qualified hitters, and he's got an .824 OPS and 51 RBI for the surprising Mariners.
Jul 2 - 12:07 AM

Robinson Cano went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer in the Mariners' 10-4 defeat of the Astros on Monday.

That's homers in back-to-back games for Cano. He has four in three weeks, all of them coming at home in Safeco. Despite the lack of early season power, it looks like Cano will win out as the AL's starting second baseman in the All-Star balloting. He hasn't been the best player in the strong field, but he's still the best bet of any of them going forward.
Jul 1 - 12:43 AM

Robinson Cano belted a two-run homer on Sunday, backing the masterful performance of Felix Hernandez and leading the Mariners to a 3-0 victory over the Indians.

Cano finished the afternoon 2-for-4 and scored a pair of runs. While his power has been noticeably absent (just five home runs in 78 games), he's hitting a terrific .322/.380/.435, has driven home 45 runs and swiped five bases in his first season in Seattle.
Jun 29 - 8:24 PM

Robinson Cano went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

Cano was the only Mariner who could get anything going at the dish, but it wasn't enough against Padres starter Jesse Hahn. Cano continues to hit for average, but the power hasn't shown up yet. He's slashing .333/.391/.442 with five home runs and 40 RBI.
Jun 19 - 9:29 PM

Robinson Cano hit his third home run of the year on Wednesday as the Mariners fell to the Yankees 4-2.

Cano was 0-for-3 heading into his ninth inning at-bat against Masahiro Tanaka, who was two outs away from finishing off a complete game shutout. The veteran second baseman had other ideas, lifting a two-run homer to left center. The only aspect of Cano's game that is waiting to arrive in Seattle is the power. He's slashing .332/.381/.436 but is on pace to finish with just seven homers.
Jun 12 - 1:03 AM

Robinson Cano drove in two runs Monday as the Mariners defeated the host Rays 3-0.

Cano opened the game's scoring with a two-run single to left field in the top of the third inning. It was his only hit of the game and the $240 second baseman is still not hitting for any power, but it's hard to get overly upset about a .330 batting average and .381 on-base percentage. The extra-base hits should come eventually.
Jun 9 - 4:38 PM

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Rays.

Cano had two of the Mariners' five hits on the night. The high-priced second baseman leads the AL with a .333 batting average at the moment, but he's still sitting on just two home runs through 56 games. The change of scenery surely plays a part in the power outage, but he's also hitting more balls on the ground than previous seasons.
Jun 6 - 11:35 PM

Robinson Cano will see how his hand feels in batting practice Monday before he officially returns to the lineup.

Cano expects to play, so he'll only sit out if there's some unforeseen discomfort. The high-price second baseman hasn't played since last Wednesday due to a stomach virus and a bone bruise in his left hand.
Jun 2 - 4:25 PM

Robinson Cano (hand) is back in the Mariners' starting lineup on Monday night against the Yankees.

Cano missed four consecutive games with a stomach virus and a bone bruise in his left hand. The $240 million second baseman has hit .327 with a .371 on-base percentage so far this season for Seattle, but he's slugged just two home runs in 205 at-bats.
Jun 2 - 3:05 PM

Robinson Cano (hand) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

Cano has missed four straight games due to illness and a bruised hand. It's actually the most starts he's missed since 2006, as the second baseman had played at least 159 games in seven straight seasons. Willie Bloomquist is at the keystone Sunday.
