Robinson Cano: Playing for D.R. in WBC
Cano is on the roster for Team Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic.
Cano might not see much action for the stacked D.R. squad, but he could potentially do some late-game pinch hitting against righties. The 40-year-old played in 33 games for three different teams in 2022, managing just a .373 OPS. Cano is a free agent but hasn't given any indication that he's ready for retirement.... See More ...

Robinson Cano: Officially hits free agency
Cano elected free agency after being outrighted by Atlanta on Thursday.
The 39-year-old was designated for assignment earlier this week, and it's hardly a surprise he'll be returning to the open market. Cano appeared in only nine games during his brief stint in Atlanta and went 4-for-26 with a double, a walk and a run. The veteran has a .373 OPS across 33 games in his three big-league stops this year, so he seems unlikely to receive a look from another team.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Robinson Cano: Time over in Atlanta
Atlanta designated Cano for assignment Monday.
Cano recently lost hold of his role as Atlanta's primary second baseman, and his status as a left-handed hitter with limited defensive utility made him an ill fit in a bench role. As a result, Atlanta opted to replace him with Ehire Adrianza, who was acquired from the Nationals on Monday and is a more traditional fit for a utility role. Given that he's now been let go by three teams this season after slashing a collective .150/.183/.190 with a career-worst 24 percent strikeout rate over 104 plate appearances in the majors, the 39-year-old Cano's prolific run in the big leagues could be over....

Cano has a .154/.185/.192 slash line through nine games for Atlanta. Orlando Arcia will receive another start at the keystone and appears to be the favorite for starts going forward.... See More ...

Braves' Robinson Cano: Two hits in team debut
Cano went 2-for-3 with a pair of base hits Monday in Atlanta's 4-1 loss to the Mets.
After Atlanta acquired him from San Diego on Sunday, Cano quickly joined the big club and entered the starting lineup for the series opener against one of his former teams. Cano got the job done while batting out of the ninth spot and should settle in as Atlanta's primary second baseman while Ozzie Albies (foot) remains on the 60-day injured list. The righty-hitting Orlando Arcia could spell the lefty-hitting Cano at the keystone when Atlanta opposes left-handed pitchers.... See More ... See Less

Prior to the trade, Cano had slashed .333/.375/.479 with three home runs in 21 games at Triple-A El Paso. Per Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the lefty-hitting Cano is expected to fill the large side of a platoon at second base, with the righty-hitting Orlando Arcia entering the lineup versus left-handed pitching....
