  • Mets' Robinson Cano: Dealing with lower back discomfort

    The Canon="New York Mets" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_TEAM" data-league-abbreviation="MLB" data-team-abbreviation="NYM">Mets announced Wednesday that Cano was removed from the Dominican Winter League roster of Estrellas Orientales after experiencing lower-back discomfort.

    Cano was participating in the DWL after sitting out the entire 2021 season while he resided on the Mets' restricted list, but he's now considered week-to-week with a back issue. It's not yet clear whether the injury will affect his availability for spring training in 2022. The 39-year-old second baseman is on the Mets' books through the 2023 campaign.

  • Mets' Robinson Cano: Reinstated from restricted list

He slashed .316/.352/.544 with 10 home runs, 30 RBI and 23 runs across 50 games during the shortened 2020 campaign and will likely compete for a starting role during spring training in 2022 since he's under contract for $20.25 million each of the next two seasons.
