Robinson Cano – Hot
Robby had a stellar week for the M’s, posting a .407 batting average across 6 games. Cano went 11 for 27, with 2 doubles, 1 home run and 4 RBI. The 32-year-old struck out 2 times, and nursed 1 free pass. He registered a .429 on base percentage and slugged .593.
It has been a tale of two seasons for Robinson Cano in 2015. The superstar second baseman hit .238 with 4 home runs and 24 RBI through the first 73 games of the season. However, Cano is hitting a scorching .325 with 9 doubles, 1 triple, 8 home runs and 27 RBI since July 1.
I’m very impressed with Cano’s perseverance this season. Many suggested his drop in production was the beginning of his decline, and he would never be the same player again. Robby has proven the skeptics wrong, and I think he still has a few All-Star seasons ahead of him.
