Mets: Robinson Cano is worse than “Roberto Alomar all over again”

It’s going to take a far greater effort from Robinson Cano to outplay the already disappointing performance Roberto Alomar provided the New York Mets. When the New York Mets acquired Robinson Cano this past offseason, immediately there were comparisons made to other second basemen from the franchise’s history who were busts. Carlos Baerga is one […] Mets: Robinson Cano is worse than “Roberto Alomar all over again” - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - A New York Mets Blog Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Thriving Mets duo will take a seat with Robinson Cano back

Robinson Cano’s return could take away playing time from two of the more productive Mets. With the second baseman on the injured list until Sunday, infielders Dominic Smith and J.D. Davis were getting starts in left field while Jeff McNeil played second. But now that Cano is back, McNeil will shift to left, meaning Smith...

The plan is to play a doubleheader today.

Mets place Robinson Cano back on injured list, call up Tim Peterson

Cano appeared for just a few innings between injured list stints. The Mets have placed Robinson Cano back on the injured list and called up relief pitcher Tim Peterson to take his spot on the active roster. Cano had come off the injured list without playing in any rehab games last week, and he played just a few innings before his quad forced him out of the one game he played in. And for the past few days, the Mets had hesitated to put him back on the injured list, even though he wasn’t able to play. Cano’s season has gotten off to a rough start, as he’s hit just .238/.284/.366 with...

Let’s see how it feels tomorrow,” Cano said Friday before remaining out...
