Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

Robinson Cano

Robinson Cano began his MLB career with the Yankees in 2005, quickly establishing himself as one of the game’s top second basemen. He was selected for multiple All-Star Games and won a World Series championship in 2009. He also earned Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Awards in New York.

In 2014, Cano signed with the Seattle Mariners, inking one of the most lucrative contracts in baseball history at the time. With the Mariners, he continued to excel, earning additional All-Star selections and reaching career milestones in hits and home runs.

Despite his on-field successes, Cano’s career faced significant setbacks (and controversy) when he was suspended for 80 games during the 2018 season and 162 games in 2020 for violating MLB’s drug policy.
