Robinson Cano is without a doubt the Seattle Mariners’ most valuable player, and no I don’t mean that as in he should get a trophy and be deemed the M’s best player this year.

The career .307 hitter is hitting a disappointing .245 so far this year, and just hasn’t been able to piece it together. So I dove deep into the stats, and tried to see if I could put my finger on what is wrong with Robby. Here are four things that I think summarize Robbie’s issues at the dish.
