Robinson Cano moves from second to DH for Mariners


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:31 pm ET) Robinson Cano gets a day off from the field on Sunday for the first time this season. After starting the first 42 games for the Mariners at second base, Cano is in the lineup as DH. 

Brad Miller replaces Cano at second base, batting leadoff. 

The Mariners also started Welington Castillo at catcher for the second time this year, giving Mike Zunino a rest. 


Mariners' Robinson Cano struggling vs. lefties during rough start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano owns a .647 OPS, which would be the lowest mark of his career over a full season by a wide margin, but he's been particularly bad against left-handers.

Cano's .283/.333/.381 line against righties isn't up to his normal standards, but it's far better than the .162/.162/.270 line he's delivered in 37 at-bats against lefties.

Part of the issue has been his lack of power, as his only home run of the season came back on April 14. He had a similar problem last season, recording just one home run in his first 43 games and taking just two home runs into the beginning of June.

"Statistically, you look at the numbers and our analytical department breaks it down," manager Lloyd McClendon said to MLB.com. "Robbie Cano is one of the most unlucky hitters in Major League Baseball. He's really hit a lot of balls extremely hard that have been caught. I'm not overly concerned because he's not striking out a lot. I think when he gets hot, he'll get it rolling."

He was able to hit .308/.388/.472 with 12 home runs in 390 at-bats from the beginning of June through the end of the season, and he'll be looking for a similar boost this season after another slow start.


Mariners 2B Robinson Cano nearing breakout from slump


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano isn't having the start to the season he'd hoped for, but it could end soon, according to MLB.com.

Cano was 5 for 12 at the plate entering Saturday's game, boosting his average to .263 in 118 at-bats this season. 

"The way I look at it, you can't judge a guy just because of batting average," Cano said. "How many times -- not only with myself but guys around the league -- do you see guys hitting .230 or .250 [this early in the year], and they're crushing the ball right at guys? Especially with men in scoring position.

"But people love to criticize and say stuff. For me, I understand what it's all about. If you're not producing, it's not going to happen. I'm used to that. I know a lot of people are saying I'm not doing good, but we play 162 games. If I start putting up good numbers, everything will change. The last thing you want as a player is getting that stuff in your mind that you have to worry about what people say because you're not swinging good. You don't want things in your mind limiting you from playing at a high level."

Manager Lloyd McClendon isn't too concerned with the start and noted Cano has been drawing a lot of walks.

"He's a great player, but great players need love, too," McClendon said. "And attention. So from time to time, you have to give them little reminders as well. I think he's starting to swing the bat a lot better. Last night, he took a walk. He was more patient at the plate. He'd been going outside the zone a little too much. It was just a simple little reminder: 'Take your walks.' When he does that, he usually gets on a roll."


Mariners 2B Robinson Cano collects three hits in loss Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/6/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano recorded three hits in five at-bats, including a double, and scored a run in Tuesday's loss to the Angels. Cano, who recently broke an 0-for-18 skid, is now hitting .320 (8 for 25) over his last six games. 

Cano is still trying to get things going in 2015, as the lifetime .309 hitter is batting just .261 on the year with only one home run and seven RBI. 


Mariners' Robinson Cano heating up after snapping 0-for-18 slump


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is beginning to emerge from his early season slump.

Cano is hitting 5 for 16 (.313) over that span, lifting his season average 11 points, to .255. 


Robinson Cano on baserunning blunder: 'I didn't pay attention'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano acknowledged he wasn't paying attention during Wednesday's base-running error in Los Angeles, per MLB.com.

"I didn't pay attention to the game," Cano said. "You don't want that to happen. There was nothing I could do after that. … I'm human. I make mistakes. But those are the kind of things I shouldn't let happen again."

Cano thought the bases were loaded when Logan Morrison drew a walk to re-load the bases. He began walking home before catcher Yasmani Grandal threw to third baseman Juan Uribe to tag him out for the second out of the sixth inning. Mike Zunino grounded out for the third out, ending Seattle's rally in the sixth. Cano's club were swept by the Dodgers on Wednesday.

After the game, Cano called it the biggest blunder he has had in a game in his career.

"I would say yes. I felt in that situation the dumbest guy in the game," Cano said. "I wish he'd thrown it into left field. Those are the things that make you embarrassed, being in the game so long and those little things happen in a game. I told the manager, 'It's my fault, I should have been paying attention.'"

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cano hit .296 in March/April last season -- his first year with Seattle. Although, he had just one home run and 12 RBI in 25 games in that span.


Robinson Cano rejoins Mariners after attending grandfather's funeral


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is expected to play Saturday against Diamondbacks after spending some time away from the team to attend his grandfather's funeral in the Dominican Republic. 

Cano's grandfather, Ovidio Cano, died of lung cancer. He was a major influence on Cano's life with his pursuit of playing professional baseball. 

"He was a guy who had all my numbers. He always wrote down my stats," Cano said, via MLB.com. "He followed everything. He'd call me sometimes and say, 'How you doing?' I'd say, 'I'm good.' And he'd say, 'Last year at this time, you were hitting .330, 10 homers, 40 RBIs. So this year, you need five RBIs, one homer and three hits to be where you were last year.' Those are the things that really motivate me."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
