Robinson Cano

  1. Alex Rodriguez is batting second for the first time since 2006

    Sep 9, 2013, 3:49 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Toronto Blue Jays

    Yankees manager Joe Girardi has moved Alex Rodriguez to the second spot in the lineup tonight, in between leadoff man Brett Gardner and No. 3 hitter Robinson Cano. Last time Rodriguez hit second in a big-league game? August 26, 2006. Back then Rodriguez was 30 years old and in his third season with the Yankees,…

  2. Red Sox best Mariano Rivera, beat Yankees in 10 innings

    Sep 6, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox Jacoby Ellsbury scores at home plate as New York Yankees Austin Romine cannot hold the throw in their MLB game in New York

    Call it “Deja Drew.” After the Red Sox let a five-run lead slip away, things were going all according to plan for the Yankees on Thursday. David Robertson pitched a perfect eighth up 8-7, and Mariano Rivera retired the first two batters he faced in the ninth. That’s when things unraveled. Mike Napoli, who was…

  3. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 5, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 20, Tigers 4: Well, that was something. Eight homers in all for the Red Sox. Two from David Ortiz, who picked up his 2,000th career hit as well. Injury added to insult: Jose Iglesias left the game with shin splints. Cardinals 5, Reds 4: A sixteen inning affair in which Matt Adams homered…

  4. Ivan Nova holds Orioles to three hits in first career shutout

    Ivan Nova Getty

    Ivan Nova tossed his first career shutout while Robinson Cano did the heavy lifting for the offense as the Yankees defeated the Orioles 2-0 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Nova gave up just three hits (all of them singles), one walk, and two hit-by-pitches while striking out five batters. He induced 15 swinging strikes and…

  5. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Aug 31, 2013, 8:56 AM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki, Miguel Gonzalez

    CC Sabathia hardly delivered an ace-like performance last night, but fortunately for him, his offense was there to pick him up. On the strength of a five-run fifth inning, the Yankees defeated the Orioles 8-5 at Yankee Stadium and remain very much alive in the AL Wild Card race. Miguel Gonzalez failed to get an…

  6. Mark Reynolds is the Yankees starting second baseman tonight

    Aug 28, 2013, 5:37 PM EDT

    New York Yankees first baseman Mark Reynolds makes a sliding catch for the out against the Tampa Bay Rays during the first inning of their American League MLB baseball game in St. Petersburg, Florida

    With Robinson Cano day-to-day after being hit by a pitch, Eduardo Nunez was supposed to play second base. Except, Eduardo Nunez was scratched just a minute ago so … Nunez can’t go. Mark Reynolds will play second. Let’s get weird. — Andy McCullough (@McCulloughSL) August 28, 2013   Dear Lord, this is going to be…

  7. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 28, 2013, 7:09 AM EDT

    1995 World Series

    Braves 2, Indians 0: Tom Glavine with eight shutout innings and David Justice with a big homer. Wait, sorry. Having flashbacks. The real amazing thing here is that if you would have told me before the season that the Braves would have a game in late August where Elliot Johnson got a start and tripled…

  8. Robinson Cano leaves game with left hand contusion

    Aug 27, 2013, 9:15 PM EDT

    cano getty

    Robinson Cano departed Tuesday night’s game versus the Blue Jays after taking a J.A. Happ pitch off his left hand in the top of the first inning. But the early word from the Yankees’ medical staff is good. According to MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch, the star second baseman only has a left hand contusion, though he…

  9. Derek Jeter in the lineup, batting second against the Blue Jays

    Aug 26, 2013, 5:44 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Derek Jeter … is … GO! Today’s Yankees lineup, featuring the return of No. 2: pic.twitter.com/GWmnfuTR04 — Mark Feinsand (@FeinsandNYDN) August 26, 2013   It’ll be interesting to see if he runs hard or if he takes a page from Robinson Cano‘s book and doesn’t. And if he doesn’t, I wonder if he gets any…

  10. YES doesn’t note when Robinson Cano doesn’t hustle? Really?

    Aug 26, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    cano gray getty

    Fun stuff from Phil Mushnick of the Post: he hates the fact that Robinson Cano doesn’t hustle. And he hates it even more that the Yankees broadcasters at YES don’t call Cano out for it. Really, he lays into the network for not noticing this, accusing them of being the Yankees’ Pravda or something: So…

  11. Robinson Cano hit his 200th career homer

    Aug 20, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    cano getty

    The Yankees found themselves down 4-0 in the second inning but they came back with three more runs in the third thanks to Robinson Cano‘s three-run homer.  It was his 200th in his career. Here it is: Andrew Mearns of Pinstriped Bible had a nice post recently about Cano’s milestone homers in the past. I’m guessing…

  12. HBT Daily: Let Puig be Puig

    Today Kay and I are talking about Yasiel Puig Brian Wilson and whether the Yankees are insane enough to give Robinson Cano a ten-year deal

  13. YES Network’s Michael Kay blasts Robinson Cano for not hustling

    Aug 4, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    cano gray getty

    Leading off the top of the eighth inning with his team trailing the Padres 6-3, Robinson Cano weakly grounded out to second baseman Logan Forsythe, who handily threw him out at first with plenty of time to spare. Cano lightly jogged down the first base line before turning back towards the dugout. Michael Kay, leading…

  14. Just like old times: Derek Jeter returns, Alfonso Soriano helps Yankees walk off

    Jul 28, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v New York Yankees

    Before he joined the Yankees on Friday, Alfonso Soriano was last teammates with Derek Jeter in September 2003, nearly ten years ago. Jeter once again made his triumphant return this afternoon, having recovered from a quad injury suffered in his 2013 debut on July 11. In that first game back, Jeter singled in his first…

  15. This hasn’t been one of Robinson Cano’s better days

    Jul 23, 2013, 2:44 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    Robinson Cano is aiming for one of the biggest contracts in baseball history as a free agent this winter, and it’s safe to say he’ll end up a very, very wealthy man. Still, two pieces of news today haven’t helped his cause at all. Most will point to Dustin Pedroia‘s seemingly under-market seven-year, $100 million…

  16. Red Sox, Dustin Pedroia agree to a contract extension

    Rob Bradford of WEEI has the news: Pedroia and Red Sox have agreed in principle on extension. Starts in 2015 goes to ’21. Comes down to approximatey 7 years for $100 million — Rob Bradford (@bradfo) July 23, 2013 And to clarify: To clarify, per source, Pedroia, Sox agree to deal to begin after last…

  17. Locking up Dustin Pedroia is more about sentiment than sense

    Jul 20, 2013, 4:35 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia

    There’s something to be said for rewarding a star player who has been underpaid most of his career. Dustin Pedroia is one of the two faces of the Red Sox, he’s a legitimate All-Star candidate every year and it’s possible he’ll go into the Hall of Fame someday. If he were a free agent this…

  18. Robinson Cano’s father thinks son will re-sign with Yankees

    Jul 17, 2013, 8:14 AM EDT

    cano tall getty

    Robinson Cano‘s dad Jose threw to his son in Monday night’s Home Run Derby at Citi Field in New York. And he spoke to reporters about his son’s impending free agency before Tuesday’s All-Star Game: “I am confident that the Yankees are going to come up with something good in the end,” Jose Cano said.…

  19. The American League wins the 2013 All-Star Game 3-0

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    Another Midsummer Classic in the bag. Another scoresheet which looks like a train wreck, but that’s how the All-Star Game rolls. And the American League rolled to victory here at Citi Field, beating the National League 3 to 0. As with most All-Star Games it was the small moments which were the most memorable. Here…

  20. UPDATE: The American League is now up 3-0 heading into the bottom of the eighth

    Jul 16, 2013, 10:52 PM EDT

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    10:52 PM: It’s now 3-0 in the bottom of the eighth, as the AL strung some hits off Craig Kimbrel, capped by Jason Kipnis‘ two out double scoring Sal Perez. And a surprise? Mariano Rivera comes into the game in the bottom of the eighth, not the ninth. Interesting choice. 9:41 PM: The AL extends…

    While teammates Mariano Rivera and Robinson Cano were participating in Tuesday night’s All-Star Game at Citi Field, Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was continuing his minor league rehab assignment with the Double-A Trenton Thunder. According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, A-Rod went 0-for-3 with a run-scoring sac fly while playing seven innings on…

  22. Robinson Cano leaves All-Star Game after taking a Matt Harvey fastball off his right leg

    Jul 16, 2013, 8:35 PM EDT

    cano gray getty

    It’s the last thing anyone wants in an All-Star Game. Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was lifted in the top of the first inning tonight at Citi Field after taking a Matt Harvey fastball — clocked at 96 mph — off the inside of his right knee. It sounded bad and looked bad, but Cano…

    Chevrolet Home Run Derby

    Following the Home Run Derby from on-site is … weird. It’s a made for TV event, really. And when you’re sitting out behind the left field foul pole in a temporary press box that is sort of insulated from the sounds of the ballpark you lose your gravity pretty quickly. I had the MLB.com feed…
