Robinson Cano (2B)

Seattle Mariners - 98% owned

(?)
Bats: L, Throws: R

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.
