Robinson Cano has had a great spring for the Mariners, but he might have had his best game on Monday afternoon against the Angels. Cano went 2 for 4 with a home run, 1 RBI, and 2 runs scored. Cano hit the ball hard today, and his home run was the first of the spring for him.

Robinson Cano was the difference maker for the Mariners in 2014, and based on his performance this spring, it appears he will once again pace the M’s offense in 2015. Cano is hitting .364 with 1 home run, 5 doubles, 7 RBI’s, and 1 stolen base across 44 at bats. As always, Robby has been silky smooth on defense at the keystone.

I am hoping for a career year from Cano in 2015 with Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager hitting behind him. I expect the C & C boys to lead the M’s back to the playoffs for the first time since 2001.
