Slumping Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano isn't worried about his sluggish first two months of the season.

"This is not a thing that’s going to bring me down,” Cano said, per the Journal News. “You guys know me. I always stay positive. Every at-bat is a different one. I’m not going to over-think it."

Cano is hitting just .246, but he's sure he'll turn things around. 

"There’s a lot of balls that I’ve been hitting hard, but just right at guys. There’s things you can’t control in this game. You just can hit the ball, but you can’t control it. But I’ve been in a situation like this before, and we’ve got a lot of games left in the season."

With the Yankees in town, Cano had the opportunity to reflect on his former team, and his decision to leave it. But, like his slump, he's not letting the past bring him down. 

"That’s something that I don’t really care about,” Cano said. “I’m just here. I’m here to help this team to win, and not just focus on somebody else. … I would never regret my decision."
