Cano went 3-for-5 with a home run, three runs scored and two RBI in Saturday's 9-7 win over the Rangers. His two-run shot in the seventh inning off Alex Claudio ended up being the game-winner, as it gave the M's an 8-6 lead at the time. Cano only has two homers on the season, but otherwise he's been nearly as productive as ever, slashing .333/.450/.485 through 19 games with nine RBI and 16 runs.
Cano went 2-for-4 in a loss to the Astros on Thursday. Cano continues to be a bright spot for the Mariners in both victory and defeat, as he's now hit safely in 12 of 15 April games. The only fault that could potentially be found with the 35-year-old's performance thus far is a relative absence of power, as he's slugged just one home run over his first 70 plate appearances. However, Cano's sparkling .339/.471/.464 line is certainly serving fantasy owners well, and given that he's smacked at least 21 round trippers in eight of his last nine seasons, his long-ball drought is unlikely to last much longer.
Cano went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Astros. Cano hit his first home run of the season in the first inning off Lance McCullers in an otherwise quiet offensive game for the Mariners. Despite the limited early-season power production, Cano has gotten on base at a .484 clip and scored 13 runs.
Cano went 1-for-1 with three walks and two runs in a 7-4 win over Oakland on Friday. The ageless wonder's OBP is up to .578 over 45 plate appearances, an impressive number irrespective of the abbreviated sample size. Cano has gotten there with the help of 10 walks, and he's now drawn multiple free passes in three of the past five games. He's also reached safely in all but one of his first 11 contests, with home runs the one major missing element in his otherwise spectacular stat line.
Cano went 1-for-2 with an RBI single, two walks and two runs Saturday in the Mariners' 11-4 win over the Twins. Cano was a nuisance to Twins pitching all afternoon long, keeping warm on the unseasonably frigid day by remaining a constant presence on the bases. The perennial All-Star has enjoyed a stellar start to his age-35 season, hitting safely in all seven games on his way to a .440 average over his first 29 plate appearances.
