Hot7/21/2014 10:48:00 AM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano was out of Sunday's lineup with hamstring tightness, but is probable for Monday's game against the NY Mets.
Insight: The second baseman has batted .414 in July. Cano has batted .335 average with 57 RBI, 49 runs and seven steals this season. Fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned by the leg injury except that he may not steal bases for a while.
 
Hot7/20/2014 2:38:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is out of Sunday's lineup with hamstring tightness.
Insight: Cano has made up for his lack of power (7 HR) with a .335 average, 57 RBI, 49 runs and seven steals this season. He's dealt with the hamstring injury sporadically this season, so fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned. The second baseman has batted .414 in July.
 
Hot6/25/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano has a .375 average, four doubles and a homer in 32 at-bats against Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz.
Insight: Buchholz has a 7.02 ERA and a 1.98 WHIP in 50 innings this season and is making his first start since May 26 after spending a month on the DL with a hyperextended knee. Cano (.329, 4 HR, 43 RBI) should have a nice day Wednesday.
 
Hot6/21/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is a career .435 hitter (10-for-35) against Saturday's starter Jason Vargas.

6/20/2014 10:01:00 AM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano and pitcher James Shields have a long history against one another with Cano winning a lot of the battles.
Insight: Cano is 32-for-81 (.395) with four homers and 13 RBI in their matchups. He isn't hitting many home runs in Seattle (four), but he's still hitting for a high average .333 with 40 RBI.
 
6/7/2014 9:53:00 AM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is a career .333 with three homers and six RBI against Rays right-hander Alex Cobb.
Insight: Cano is leading the AL in batting (.333), though his power numbers are down with just two homers and an .802 OPS. Such is life away from Yankee Stadium's short right field porch.
 
6/3/2014 10:39:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano collected three hits Tuesday in a win against Atlanta.
Insight: Cano may have a new address but he's still the same hitter he was in New York. And by that we mean he's one of the best in baseball. Among AL batters, Cano's .333 average this season is second only to Victor Martinez (.338).
 
6/2/2014 3:16:00 PM
Description: Seattle second baseman Robinson Cano is expected back in the lineup on Monday night against his former team, the Yankees.
Insight: Cano (.327, 2 HR, 31 RBI) missed four games with a bruised hand. Though we haven't seen much power from Cano this season, the five-time All-Star is still swinging a hot bat.

Description: Seattle second baseman Robinson Cano will miss his fourth straight game Sunday, according to Shannon Drayer of 710 AM ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Cano (.327, 2 HR, 31 RBI) bruised his hand earlier this week. This is the first time he's missed more than three games in a season since 2006.

5/30/2014 9:17:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is dealing with a bruise between the thumb and forefinger on his left hand, according to Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune.
Insight: Cano had played every game for the Mariners this season before getting scratched Thursday. The Mariners said that he "isn't feeling well," which made it sound like he's dealing with an illness, but apparently the hand injury is what's keeping him out.
 
5/30/2014 5:23:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano (illness) is out of the lineup again Friday, according to Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times.
Insight: Cano had played every game for the Mariners this season before getting scratched Thursday. He's played at least 159 games in every year since 2007.

Description: M's second baseman Robinson Cano won't be available Thursday against the Angels. SOURCE: Bob Dutton, Tacoma News Tribune

Hot5/26/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano went 3-for-4 with two RBI Monday against the Angels.
Insight: Of course, all three hits were singles. Cano has just 14 extra-base hits 215 plate appearances this season, an XBH% of 6.5. He had an extra-base hit in 10.5 percent of his plate appearances over his first nine seasons.
 
Hot5/21/2014 6:23:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano hit his second homer of the season Wednesday at Texas.
Insight: Cano has been killing it for the past month, but the power has been missing. He's gone 41-for-111 (.369) with nine doubles, a triple, one home run and 19 RBI in his last 27 games and is hitting .326 this season.
 
Hot5/18/2014 6:17:00 PM
Description: M's second baseman Robinson Cano (4-for-5) went on a hitting spree Sunday against the Twins.
Insight: Cano's slow start is now a distant memory. He's gone 14-for-31 (.452) with four extra base hits over his last eight outings. We're still waiting for the power to come back (just one HR in 170 at bats this season) but it's tough to complain when Cano is third among major league second basemen in both batting average (.318) and RBI (24).
 
5/9/2014 12:25:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano must be thrilled to be facing Royals left-hander Jason Vargas on Friday.
Insight: Usually left-handed hitters have a tough time batting against southpaws but that hasn't been the case for Cano in this matchup (.450 AVG in 20 at bats). Cano has had a quiet season by his standards (.289, 1 HR, 19 RBI) but he's still a must-start in all fantasy leagues.
 
Cold4/19/2014 9:38:00 PM
Description: Seattle second baseman Robinson Cano has collected two hits in his last 21 at-bats.
Insight: One of them was his first home run of the season. He's hitting .254 after going 0-for-3 Saturday, and the M's have lost seven of their last eight games, but we aren't worried about the star second baseman.
 
4/19/2014 10:49:00 AM
Description: Seattle second baseman Robinson Cano has a career .545 batting average with two homers against Miami right-hander Henderson Alvarez.
Insight: Cano is batting .266 this season which is below expectations after hitting over .300 for the past five years. This matchup may help, but what would really help is some better protection in the lineup.
