Robinson Cano back in the lineup after Saturday scare. “I feel good,” Cano said before the game. “No headaches and I slept better than I have in a while. It just hurts right where the ball hit me. I was lucky.” Cano did not have one of his better games, going 0-for-3 with a walk & two strikeouts. (Source: Seattle Times)

Fantasy Impact: The good news is Robinson Cano is ok after getting hit in the head by an arrant throw on Saturday. The bad news is that Robinson Cano is still riding career-low offensive numbers.

Robinson Cano went 1-for-4 with a solo-HR and a strikeout against the Angels on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: It was Cano's second homer in the last four games as his power bat is finally showing signs of life. He's also had at least one hit in each of those four games, so perhaps Cano can get something going and salvage what has been a mediocre season thus far.

Fantasy Impact: Keep Robinson Cano out of your lineup until further notice.

Robinson Cano went 2-for-5 with two singles against the Giants on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: As sad as it is, a multi-hit game is about as exciting as Cano's games get these days. He's only batting .200 this month with no homers and far more strikeouts (13) than walks (2). Cano is viable only in AL-Only leagues due to his consistent playing time.

Robinson Cano went 2-for-5 with two doubles, a RBI, and a strikeout against the Indians on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Cano was able to get to Indians SP Kluber twice for doubles, a rare feat. Cano still hasn't put together much of anything this season, batting a mere .242 with two home runs. He's more of an AL-Only play at this point.

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and two strikeouts against the Rays on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Cano's time on the base paths continues to be negative, as he was picked off at first on Thursday, to go with being 1-for-4 in SB attempts. That tacked on with his lack of power (2 HRs) and mediocre average (.248) makes Cano one of the biggest non-injury disappointments of the season, in fantasy and reality.

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a single, a walk, and a two-run HR against the Indians on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Cano is in the midst of the worst season of his career, batting a mere .257 with two homers, one of which he hit Saturday night. Fantasy owners could have predicted a low HR total being in Seattle (and after the 14 HR effort last season), but the dropoff in batting average has been surprising for all, and quite sudden. Keep him active in hopes for a return to form, but don't expect it.

Robinson Cano broke out of a weekend-long hitless streak by going 2-for-4 with two RBI singles in the Mariners' 4-1 win over Tampa Bay. Cano had gone 0-for-11 in Toronto over the weekend, with only one walk. Cano's batting average climbed to .253 with Monday's performance.

Fantasy Impact: Cano continues to have a disappointing 2015, however he has struggled out of the gate in the past. As recently as 2013 and 2011, he hit barely over .250 in the month of May, but has finished well over .300 for the season each time. Fantasy owners should continue to roll with Cano. There is simply too much talent there to give up on him this early.

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with two singles and a walk against the Orioles on Thursday. He also struckout once in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Cano is having another month without a lot of value for his fantasy owners, batting .265 with no homers and only one stolen base. Worse still, he was caught stealing on Thursday, making him 1-for-4 in attempts thus far. If you still have Cano at this point you're stuck as the return on a trade would be pitiful, and dropping him is still unwise. Keep him active and hope for a production spike.

Robinson Cano went 1-for-4 with a double and a strikeout against the Red Sox on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: It's been a disappointing season thus far for the former consensus #1 second baseman. Cano only has one homer thus far, and is hitting a middling .268, but he has managed to hit a good amount of extra-baggers. The 12 doubles have him eighth in MLB, and hopefully those hard hits will eventually turn to homers, at least for the sake of fantasy owners who cling to the hope of a bounce back.

Robinson Cano went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout against the Astros on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Cano has struggled out of the gate this season, only hitting .255, and an empty one at that. Cano has only one HR, was caught stealing in his single attempt this year, and is behind his usual pace at drawing walks with just six in 102 ABs. Hang onto him in all formats, and hopefully fantasy owners will get some return on their large investment soon.

Robinson Cano collects two hits

Robinson Cano has really been struggling at the plate to begin 2015 but he was able to go 2-for-4 on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: It has been a rough start to the season Cano as he is only batting .211 with one home run and three runs batted in. It is surprising to see him struggle out of the gate with his protection in the order, Nelson Cruz, hitting the ball out of the park at a rapid pace. Fantasy owners should not overreact to the slow start and continue to put him in your lineup.

Robinson Cano went 2-for-3 with a single and a RBI-double on Wednesday against the Cubs. He also struckout once.

Fantasy Impact: It was another solid performance in what has been a great spring for Cano. He's clearly a top-2 2B (depending on your feelings about Jose Altuve) and the only downside so far is that he has yet to hit a HR in spring training. Cano needs HRs to couple with his excellent batting average to warrant the 1st-round price he's going for, so hopefully he hits a couple longballs soon.

Robinson Cano goes 1-for-3

Robinson Cano went 1-for-3 on Wednesday against the Oakland A's and is now hitting .353 for the spring.

Fantasy Impact: It is typical Cano hitting for a high average and getting on base. By his standards, Cano had a slight down-year last year. However he was still one the premier 2B in fantasy and will continue to be. With the added lineup protection of Nelson Cruz, it is expected that Cano could get closer to the 20 home run mark after finishing with 14 in 2014. Expect Cano to go off the boards by the second round in all fantasy drafts.
