Mets' Robinson Cano: Could see time at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano could see time at designated hitter for the Mets if a universal DH is part of a shortened MLB schedule, Deesha Thosar of The New York Daily News reports.

While Yoenis Cespedes (ankle) would probably be the team's first choice, if Cespedes is healthy enough to see the field occasionally, it would open up the DH spot for the 37-year-old Cano to get partial rest as well in an effort to keep him off the injured list. J.D. Davis, whose defense remains spotty, could also factor into a DH rotation, and the Mets' bench also features options such as Dominic Smith and Jed Lowrie (knee).

Mets' Robinson Cano: Says legs feel strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano has been biking and running for two hours a day in addition to throwing and hitting in a batting cage, Deesha Thosar of The New York Daily News reports. "It's been beneficial for me for sure," Cano said Tuesday. "Working out is my main focus right now. So I'm working on things and my legs feel strong right now. Just can't wait to go back on the field, and then play."

The veteran second baseman saw his production wilt amidst a variety of lower-body injuries last year, including a career-low .256 batting average, so keeping his legs in shape has been one of Cano's top priorities this offseason, and now during the shutdown. With four years and nearly $100 million remaining on his contract, the Mets are hoping the 37-year-old can rebound to something closer to his 2017 performance, when he posted a .280/.338/.453 slash line over 150 games for the Mariners.

Mets' Robinson Cano: Finding groove at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano went 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

The veteran second baseman has looked fully healthy this spring, and he's backed up that impression with a .300/.333/.450 slash line through 21 plate appearances. Cano will be given every chance by the Mets to show he still has some juice left in his bat, but he has a lot to prove after a tepid 2019.

Mets' Robinson Cano: Sees first spring action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano saw his first Grapefruit League action of the spring Friday, going 0-for-1 with a walk as the designated hitter against the Cardinals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The veteran will get Saturday off before DHing again Sunday, and Cano will then get another rest before taking the field at second base Tuesday. The Mets are taking it easy with the 37-year-old in the early part of camp after he battled injuries through most of 2019, but if he's healthy for Opening Day, Cano will likely be in the starting lineup at the keystone.

Mets' Robinson Cano: Hoping to stay healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano spent the offseason working on the fitness of his legs in an effort to avoid the injury issues that derailed his 2019, Deesha Thosar of The New York Daily News reports. "I know I can do better and that's my goal this year - stay healthy," Cano said. "If I'm healthy, I can be myself. I can be the Robbie that you guys are used to seeing play this game."

The 37-year-old is coming off the worst season of his career, and it's possible Cano simply doesn't have much left in the tank. However, he isn't that far removed from the .317/.363/.497 line he posted in the second half of 2018, and if he can avoid the quad and hamstring injuries that plagued him last year, Cano could re-emerge as a middle-of-the-order hitter. Given that he still has four years and $96 million remaining on his contract, the Mets have plenty of incentive to let him try and rediscover something close to his old form.

Mets' Robinson Cano: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano (hand) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Braves.

Cano left Thursday's game after getting hit by a pitch in the hand and did not appear in Friday's contest, but he evidently escaped without a serious injury. He'll bat third and play second base Saturday.

September 27, 2019 03:44 PM
Mets' Robinson Cano: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano (hand) is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Braves.

Cano was hit by a pitch on his right hand Thursday and though he appears to have avoided a serious injury, he'll spend at least one game out of the starting nine. Joe Panik will start at the keystone in his absence.

Mets' Robinson Cano: Appears to be fine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano appears to have avoided a serious injury after being struck by a pitch on his right hand Thursday night against Miami, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Cano was removed from the matchup immediately after being drilled, but he checked out OK after the contest, per DiComo. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward.

Mets' Robinson Cano: Exits after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano left Thursday's game against the Marlins after being struck by a pitch on his right hand, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Cano was drilled by a 93 mph fastball and immediately came out of the game. The extent of the injury is unclear at this time. Rajai Davis entered the contest to pinch run for Cano.

September 24, 2019 03:24 PM
Mets' Robinson Cano: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano (toe) is back in the lineup Tuesday against Miami.

Cano left Sunday's game after getting hit in the toe. He sat out Monday's game, but the issue evidently wasn't particularly serious. He'll bat cleanup and play second base Tuesday.

September 23, 2019 03:24 PM
Mets' Robinson Cano: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano (toe) is not in Monday's lineup against the Marlins.

Cano exited Sunday's game against the Reds with a left big toe injury, which he sustained after getting hit by a pitch in his second at-bat. X-rays came back clean, but the issue will stick force the veteran second baseman to miss at least one game. Jeff McNeil is starting at the keystone in Monday's series opener, while J.D. Davis is starting in left field.

Mets' Robinson Cano: X-rays return negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After exiting Sunday's game against the Reds, Cano underwent X-rays on his injured left big toe, which returned negative, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

With the initial scans clearing him of any structural damage to his foot, Cano can be viewed as day-to-day heading into Monday's series opener against the Marlins. Entering play Sunday, the Mets were four games behind Milwaukee in the loss column for the National League's second wild-card spot with eight games to play. With the postseason looking like a long shot, the Mets could choose to proceed cautiously with Cano even if he's only managing soreness in his toe.

September 22, 2019 02:24 PM
Mets' Robinson Cano: Exits after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano was removed from Sunday's game against the Reds in the bottom of the fourth with an apparent foot injury, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Cano was hit by a pitch in the foot in his second at-bat of the day but remained in the game through the next half inning before bowing out. Though it's unclear if his removal was precautionary or if the foot injury is a legitimate concern, the Mets should provide clarity on the matter ahead of Monday's series opener versus Miami.

Mets' Robinson Cano: Hits home run in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk during a 11-1 victory against the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

Since returning from a hamstring injury Sept. 4, Cano has hit four extra-base hits, including three homers. He's 9-for-21 (.429), as well since coming back, and even though that's a small sample, this hot streak has raised his average 10 points. Cano is batting .263 with 13 home runs, 37 RBI and 43 runs in 346 at-bats this season.

September 11, 2019 03:08 PM
Mets' Robinson Cano: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

While Cano has been hot at the dish (.444 average) since coming off the injured list, it's not surprising to see the Mets give him a day off here and there in an effort to not put too much strain on his lower body. Jeff McNeil starts at second base while Todd Frazier starts at the hot corner.

September 7, 2019 03:24 PM
Mets' Robinson Cano: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Phillies, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

With a lefty (Drew Smyly) due up for Philadelphia, the 36-year-old Cano will head to the bench after starting two straight games following his return from the injured list. Jeff McNeil will shift over to second base, opening up left field for J.D. Davis.

September 5, 2019 11:04 PM
Mets' Robinson Cano: Goes 3-for-3 in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano went 3-for-3 with a two-run home run, two runs overall and a walk during an 8-4 victory against the Nationals on Wednesday.

There shouldn't be any doubt about Cano's health after he rapped out three hits, including a homer, during his first game back from a hamstring issue. Before the injury, Cano was on fire, so dating back to Aug. 1, the veteran actually has five straight games with multiple base hits, raising his average to .259. He also has 11 home runs, 34 RBI and 39 runs in 328 at-bats this season.

September 4, 2019 02:28 PM
Mets' Robinson Cano: Officially back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

As expected, Cano has been activated from the IL ahead of the second game of the series against Washington. He finished up his rehab assignment with short-season Brooklyn on Monday and will be available immediately, though he's not in Tuesday's starting lineup. Cano is hitting .252 with 10 homers and 32 RBI in 86 games so far this season.

September 1, 2019 05:48 PM
Mets' Robinson Cano: Hoping to return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano (hamstring) expects to be activated off the 10-day injured for Tuesday's game against the Nationals, Chris Williamson of SportsNet New York reports.

Cano started a rehab assignment with short-season Brooklyn on Saturday and will apparently be ready to rejoin the Mets after only a couple rehab games. The 36-year-old went down with the torn hamstring in early August and looks as though he'll return after about a month despite initial concern he could be done for the season. The injury came at a time when Cano was on fire at the plate, going 10-for-19 with four doubles, a home run and three RBI in his previous five games.

August 30, 2019 05:16 PM
Mets' Robinson Cano: Beginning rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cano (hamstring) will start a rehab assignment with short-season Brooklyn on Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Cano took batting practice this week and resumed running at full speed, so the fact he's starting a rehab assignment isn't a major surprise. The 36-year-old has been sidelined since Aug. 4 when he suffered a torn left hamstring, but he's nearing a return to the Mets for the closing stretch despite initial uncertainty as to whether he would return this season.
