Mariners Weekly Rundown: Who’s Hot & Who’s Not
The Cano Show Gets More Entertaining Every Week!
Robinson Cano was legendary this week. The superstar second baseman slashed .516/.516/.1000 with 4 home runs and 9 RBI through 7 games. Cano also contributed 3 doubles and scored 8 runs. The highlight had to be Saturday night when he tallied 4 hits and belted a pair of homers, including the game winner in the top of the 10th inning.
The 33-year-old is having an MVP caliber season so far in 2016. Cano is hitting .305 with 12 home runs and 33 RBI across 31 games. He currently leads the league in home runs and RBI. Cano has also registered a .355 on base percentage and slugged .633 in 128 at bats. Remarkably, Robbie is on pace to launch 63 homers and drive in 172 runs this season.
These are the kinds of numbers M’s fans dreamt about when Seattle signed Cano to his monster deal a couple seasons ago. If this is what a healthy Robbie Cano looks like, then the Mariners are going to be ridiculously hard to stop this year.
