Mariners notes: Robinson Cano not in starting lineup due to flu-like symptoms

SEATTLE — Robinson Cano’s first day non-starting day of the 2015 season was not planned and did not happen by choice. Instead, the Seattle Mariners’ second baseman developed overnight what manager Lloyd McClendon termed “flu-like symptoms,” and for the first time this year was not included in the team’s starting lineup. Cano went 4 for 12 with two RBIs in Seattle’s recently completed three-game sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays — a series that capped a nine-game trip through three cities — but he became ill the night before the Mariners’ game Thursday against the Cleveland...

Pregame notes and lineups: Robinson Cano out with ‘flu-like symptoms’

Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano will miss Thursday night’s series opener against the Cleveland Indians with “flu-like symptoms,” Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said. Cano hasn’t missed a game since late July of last season and played in all but five of Seattle’s games in 2014. “He’s sick,” McClendon said, “… dehydrated, taking an IV. I’m […]

Cano’s two RBI singles support strong outing by Elias in Mariners’ 4-1 victory over Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Here was a hint Monday night of what a resurgent Robinson Cano could mean to the Seattle Mariners. Cano delivered a pair of RBI singles that proved decisive in a 4-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. They were his first RBIs in nearly two weeks. That was about it, really, against Tampa Bay starter Jake Odorizzi, but it was enough for lefty Roenis Elias and the Mariners’ bullpen relay of Mark Lowe, Carson Smith and Fernando Rodney. Elias (2-1) delivered another strong start in limiting the Rays to one run and six hits … Read more »

Mariners notebook: Cano looks back to 2008 struggles in effort to keep even keel as current slump deepens

TORONTO — What’s wrong with Robinson Cano? That question grows louder each day as the Seattle Mariners’ perennial All-Star second baseman continues to scuffle through a season that has now passed the one-quarter mark. Cano is batting just .253 after going 0-for-3 with a walk in Saturday’s 3-2 victory the Blue Jays. He also has only one homer and 11 RBIs through 42 games. That puts him on pace to finish with four and 42. “You’re trying to figure it out every single day,” he said. “You keep the same energy. I get here (to the ballpark) and do the … Read more »

The one big red flag with Robinson Cano's slow start

This hopefully isn't the beginning of Robinson Cano's serious decline, but it might be what it'd look like. I don't believe this is the beginning of the end for Robinson Cano. I don't, because I can't. Cano, tabbed to be a cornerstone of the franchise for a decade, will be paid $24 million from now until I'm an age I'd rather not calculate—and the idea of this going to hell after just a year is something I'm going to mentally block out as much as I can. I mean, come on, it's Robbie Cano. All you have to do is look at the back of his baseball card to know he's going to be alright. That's...

Mariners notebook: Cano showing signs of emerging from slump

HOUSTON — Look hard enough, and there was one notable glimmer in the Mariners’ disappointing attack as they sought to rebound Saturday from a pair of one-run losses to the Astros. Robinson Cano, with a pair of two-hit games, shows signs of emerging from one of the poorest stretches of his career. “You get hot,” he said, “and you go through slumps, but I’ve felt much better (the last two days). But there’s no excuses for what happened.” What happened, before the Mariners arrived at Minute Maid Park, was Cano limped though an 0-for-18 skid that matched the longest hitless...
