Mariners’ Robinson Cano Working at Third Base Ahead of Return from Suspension

Published

on

Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is working at third base as he prepares for his return from his current PED suspension, Mariners manager Scott Servais said, according to the Tacoma News Tribune’s TJ Cotterill.

Cano hasn’t played 3rd base since 2005 with the New York Yankees minor league system, and has only played 16 games at third in his career.

Cano, per the report, “just wants to help any way he can.  If that means giving Kyle [Seager] a day off at third, or helping at first base, playing a game at second base, he’s going to play wherever we need him to play.”

The Mariners had to turn to outfielder Dee Gordon to take Cano’s place when the suspension was initially announced. With Gordon at second and Nelson Cruz currently in the DH role, it was assumed that Cano would supplant first baseman Ryon Healy, who has struggled mightily during his first season in Seattle, upon his return.

Published

on

Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer will miss four to six weeks due to a stress fracture in his right leg.

The loss of Bauer for any stretch of time, especially for this time frame, will be an incredible blow to the Indians moving forward.

Bauer could return during the regular season in mid-to-late September.
