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. Mon, Nov 23, 2015 08:23:00 PM

"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.

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.

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.

Robinson Cano went 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and a two-run home run as the Mariners beat the Astros on Tuesday.

Cano hit one of two first-inning sacrifice flies, giving the Mariners an early 2-1 lead. He belted a two-run homer in the sixth to tie the game at 4-4, eventually allowing the Mariners to pull ahead and win. While his numbers are solid, they're not what the Mariners expected when they signed him to a 10-year, $240 million contract before the 2014 season. Cano is hitting .282/.330/.441 with 20 home runs and 76 RBI on the year.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Robinson Cano (abdomen) could be rested during this weekend's series against the Athletics.

Cano has been playing through an abdominal strain since late July. He'll continue to be in the lineup for the early-week series versus the Astros since there are playoff implications, but the second baseman could rest for at least a portion of the series over the weekend. It's something for fantasy owners to keep in mind this week.

Robinson Cano homered twice and drove in four runs as the Mariners pummeled the Royals 11-2 on Tuesday.

Cano entered the game with three home runs in 41 at-bats against Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie, and he added to that total with a solo dinger in the first inning. Then, in the third, Cano padded his career numbers against Guthrie with a three-run shot. The two-homer game was the second of the year for Cano, giving him 19 home runs on the season. Cano is batting .282/.333/.444 with 73 RBI and 76 runs scored overall.

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and four total RBI in Sunday's 9-2 win over the Rangers.

Cano's three-run homer off Rangers starter Derek Holland came in the midst of a six-run fifth inning. It was his 17th of the season. After a horrid start to the season, he's turned it on after the All-Star Break to the tune of a .323/.389/.516 triple-slash. His overall batting line sits at .281/.332/.433. In addition to the 17 homers, he's also driven in 69 runs.

Robinson Cano singled, doubled, walked, scored a run, and had two RBI as the Mariners took down the Angels 10-1 on Monday.

Cano opened up a six-run seventh inning with a two-run double to make it a 6-1 game. The second baseman hasn't had the offensive season Mariner fans were hoping for, but he has a still-productive .280/.329/.431 triple-slash line with 16 home runs, 65 RBI, and 73 runs scored. Cano has been hampered for much of the second half by an abdominal strain.

Robinson Cano admitted Monday that he still feels his abdominal strain "every time I run."

Cano was injured back in late July and the pain has apparently lingered, especially when he takes a quick first step. "Any time that I force it," he said, "I can feel it a little bit. Every time I run I feel it, but then it just goes away." The injury doesn't seem to bother Cano at the plate, as he's hitting .315/.369/.463 since August 1. The ailment is not going to force him from the lineup unless it gets worse.

Robinson Cano went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Cano went deep off of lefty reliever Jake Diekman in the eighth inning, reducing the Mariners' deficit to 8-6. The second baseman now has 15 home runs on the season, surpassing his 2014 total. It didn't seem possible when he brought a measly total of two home runs into late June. Cano is also batting .279/.325/.426 with 62 RBI to date.

Robinson Cano went 4-for-4 with a double, a run scored and a walk in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

The double was Cano's 31st of the season. After spending a solid half of the season in the dumps, he's lit it up since the All-Star Break and now boasts a .281/.328/.432 triple-slash with 14 homers and 58 RBI. This season will still go down as one of the worst of Cano's career, but it doesn't look like nearly as much of a train wreck now. Plus, there's still a month-plus to cushion out those numbers if he can stay hot.

Robinson Cano went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and two walks in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Cano hit his two-run homer off of White Sox starter John Danks in the fifth inning. After a sluggish start to the season, Cano entered the game slashing .331/.384/.589 since the All-Star Break. These numbers are what we're accustomed to seeing from the big money second baseman. He's now hitting .274/.319/.427 with 14 home runs and 56 RBI on the year. It would take a torrid streak to end the season with a .300 average, but it's not completely out of the question.
Sun, Aug 23, 2015 07:39:00 PM

Robinson Cano went 5-for-7 with a double, a home run, and three RBI as the Mariners defeated the Red Sox in 12 innings on Sunday.

Cano hit a two-run home run to open the scoring in the first inning, then added an RBI single in the third. It's the second five-hit game of his career, with the other occurring in 2011 as a Yankee. Cano's once-disappointing slash line is up to a productive .274/.319/.429 along with 13 home runs and 54 RBI.
