Stock Up: Robinson Cano

Just yesterday I wrote about how Robinson Cano has been struggling which you can read here. But in the past week we have seen a little bit of an emergence of Robbie Cano. In the last seven days, he is hitting .304 (7-23) with two runs scored and two doubles. While these numbers are encouraging, I would still like to see him prove that he can hit to all fields like MLB fans were so accustom to seeing.

The Mariners’ need Cano to regain the form that saw him finish 5th in MVP voting in 2014 in order to get back into contention. He showcased that a little bit this week, especially this weekend, having two RBIs against the Astros. But like I touched on in the link that I provided, I will not believe that Cano is back until he can prove that he can hit to the opposite field with some power.
