Robinson Cano notches 1,000th career hit at age 27 to join elite company at second base

Jul 26, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

Robinson Cano smacked a ground-rule double in the eighth inning yesterday afternoon for his 1,000th career hit, which is a pretty remarkable total for a second baseman in the middle of his age-27 season.
Cano is currently on pace for another 84 hits this season and here’s how his projected total of 1,084 hits would rank among the all-time leading second basemen through age 27:

Rogers Hornsby        1486
Roberto Alomar        1329
Frankie Frisch        1303
Bill Mazeroski        1228
Eddie Collins         1221
Billy Herman          1176
Nellie Fox            1136
Bobby Doerr           1134
Larry Doyle           1133
Pete Rose             1109
Carlos Baerga         1100
ROBINSON CANO         1084

Seven of the 11 guys ahead of him on that list are Hall of Famers, an eighth (Roberto Alomar) will be eventually, and a ninth (Pete Rose) would be if only his on-field performance was considered. Plus, right behind Cano’s projected total on the list are two more Hall of Famers in Ryne Sandberg (1,056) and Rod Carew (1,048).

    Trading Melky Cabrera to Atlanta was the best career move Robbie Cano ever made.
