Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano took himself out of Sunday afternoon’s game against the Red Sox in the bottom of the third inning after experiencing dizziness. Manager Lloyd McClendon met Cano about halfway between his position and the dugout, helping him off the field. Cano was replaced at second base by Brad Miller.

Cano reached on a fielder’s choice and scored in the top of the first inning and flied out in the top of the third, his only two plate appearances on the afternoon.

ShannonDrayer of MyNorthwest.com reports that Cano himself said the dizziness stemmed from a bout with the flu. Cano will be evaluated by a doctor but he hopes to be back in the lineup on Monday when the Mariners open up a homestand with the Rangers.

    He’s got the fever… Mariners fever, that is!

    If Mariner fever has something to do with losing then that sounds about right.

    It is probably caused by leftover Yankee-syndrome, where he thinks he is worth the contract he was given.
