Slumping Mariners' Robinson Cano working on timing, mechanics


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/9/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano hasn't exactly been Robinson Cano-like so far this season. Cano is batting just .239, which is about 70 points off his career .307 mark. Cano has struggled in the power department as well, having just two home runs and a .320 slugging percentage through 55 games in 2015.

But Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon believes Cano may be clearing his way out of his funk.

"It's been more timing than anything, we think we got him back to where he needs to be," McClendon told MLB Network Radio.

Cano has just six hits in 39 at-bats over his last 10 games.

The Mariners are home underdogs (+120) on Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.


Is Mariners 2B Robinson Cano homesick for New York?


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2015) Some in the Big Apple have speculated that disappointing Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is struggling because he is homesick for New York, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

It has even been suggested he has had his favorite Dominican foods flown to him, though Cano does have his own chef.

"If he was going to be homesick, he would have been homesick last year," a Mariners official pointed out.

Cano has experienced tremendous drops in all offensive categories while posting a slash line of .248/.288/.332 this season.

He has just 16 home runs in 809 at-bats since joining Seattle, which suggests the left-handed hitter has missed the short right-field porch at Yankee Stadium more than New York itself. Playing half of one's games at cavernous Safeco Field is not conducive to big home run power numbers.


Mariners shuffle top of the order with Logan Morrison at leadoff


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon moved Logan Morrison to the top of the order, bumping Austin Jackson to the No. 2 hole and Robinson Cano back to the No. 3 spot for Wednesday afternoon's contest against Masahiro Tanaka and the Yankees.

Morrison is riding a 10-game hitting streak, and is hitting .342 (13 for 38) with a double and four walks during the streak. It's the second time Morrison is batting leadoff this season.


Slumping Robinson Cano doesn't regret move to Mariners


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Slumping Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano isn't worried about his sluggish first two months of the season.

"This is not a thing that’s going to bring me down,” Cano said, per the Journal News. “You guys know me. I always stay positive. Every at-bat is a different one. I’m not going to over-think it."

Cano is hitting just .246, but he's sure he'll turn things around. 

"There’s a lot of balls that I’ve been hitting hard, but just right at guys. There’s things you can’t control in this game. You just can hit the ball, but you can’t control it. But I’ve been in a situation like this before, and we’ve got a lot of games left in the season."

With the Yankees in town, Cano had the opportunity to reflect on his former team, and his decision to leave it. But, like his slump, he's not letting the past bring him down. 

"That’s something that I don’t really care about,” Cano said. “I’m just here. I’m here to help this team to win, and not just focus on somebody else. … I would never regret my decision."


Mariners to bat Morrison first, Cano second in Monday's game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2015) For the first time this season, the Mariners will bat left fielder Logan Morrison in the leadoff spot, while second baseman Robinson Cano will be moved to the second spot for Monday's game against the Yankees, reports the Seattle Times.

It is the first time Morrison will bat leadoff in his career. He is on an eight-game hitting streak and is batting .345 during that time. Morrison will go against Michael Pineda, who he has never faced in his career.

Cano will bat second and he is 0 for 3 in his career against Pineda. He is hitting .188 with one home run and five RBI in his last nine games. 

The Mariners are the favorites (-145) over the Yankees on Monday.

Mariners 2B Robinson Cano returns to Saturday's starting lineup


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/30/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is finnaly returning from the illness that kept him out of two consecutive games.

Cano will bat in the third spot of the lineup against the Indians on Saturday.

Cano is hitting .251 with a home run and 21 RBI in 187 at-bats this season.


Mariners 2B Robinson Cano should be fine for Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2015) The rather mysterious ailment that has sidelined Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano from the first two games of the weekend series against Cleveland is now believed to be an ear infection, per the Tacoma News Tribune.

He is expected to return to the lineup Saturday.

"He's better," Lloyd McClendon said after the game Friday. "His weight was steady today. No IVs. He still had some chills, but they gave him some type of medicine and they believe he should be ready to go."

Cano flied out as a pinch-hitter Thursday, but did not play Friday.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is missing his first start this season on Thursday due to flu-like symptoms, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports.

Manager Lloyd McClendon said that Cano's symptoms popped up overnight after the team returned home from a road trip. He added that the second baseman had lost a couple pounds due to dehydration and was receiving fluids.

Cano, who went 9 for 37 on the road trip, has hit .253/.296/.333 with one home run and 13 RBI in 186 at-bats.


Mariners 2B Robinson Cano gets first day of rest on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/28/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is out of the lineup for Thursday's series-opener against the Indians. Cano had started every game for the Mariners this season, but he's been mired in a bit of a funk lately.

Over his last 10 games, Cano is batting just .225 (9 for 40) with zero extra base hits. So manager Lloyd McClendon opted to finally give his star a breather.

Brad Miller will handle the keystone position on Thursday.


Mariners 2B Robinson Cano endless hitless streak, grabs two RBI


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano went 2 for 4 at the plate in Seattle's 4-1 win over the Rays on Monday to end a 12 at-bats hitless streak.

Cano produced two RBI singles, one in the first and one in the eighth, to help propel Seattle to the win.

"Hopefully we start from today," said Cano to the Associated Press.

Manager Lloyd McClendon was happy for his slugger to snap out of it.

"There's nothing like positive results," McClendon said. "The guy's track record is so good, you know he's going to hit. You're just waiting on when. It does show how good we can be from a lineup standpoint when he's hitting."

Cano is now hitting .253 with 13 RBI in 178 at-bats this season.


Mariners 2B Robinson Cano working through struggles


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/24/2015) Robinson Cano is one of the game's best players, but he's been embroiled in a season-long slump for the Mariners, one that has seen his usually solid batting average dip to .247. Cano told MLB.com that he has "no excuses" for his slow start. 

Cano went 0-for-11 in the Mariners' three-game series at Toronto, and Sunday, twice hit into double plays to kill potential big innings for Seattle. 

"I don't know. I feel good. I'm swinging at good balls," Cano said. "I think it's just more just missing my pitches, pitches right down the middle that I've been hitting for foul balls. There's no excuses for that. I'm just struggling."

Cano's on-base percentage is .290, below his career average of .356. 

"The last thing I want to do is hang my head. It's a long season," he said. "And hopefully it'll turn soon."


Robinson Cano moves from second to DH for Mariners


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) 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. 

"He played second in spring training quite a bit," McClendon said to The News Tribune. "If you can play short, you can play second. Is he the greatest second baseman in the world? No. But he'll make the plays. He'll be fine."

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."
