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.

The Texas Rangers have agreed to terms on a one-year, major league deal with right hander Shelby Miller, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal.

Miller, who has already passed his physical, missed most of the 2018 season due to numerous elbow issues, and underwent Tommy John surgery back in 2017, so there is risk involved with his signing.

Prior to the injuries, Miller was considered one of the major’s most promising young pitchers.
