Mariners Injury Update: Robinson Cano exits early with dizziness

By on 8/24/2014 08:45:00 PM

Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano left Sunday's 8-6 win over the Boston Red Sox in the third inning after he experienced dizziness, reports Greg Johns of (video here and below). He was replaced by Brad Miller.

Cano was examined by team doctors, who found "nothing serious."
The six-time All-Star Cano is hitting .328/.395/.467 (OPS+ 146) with 11 home runs and 70 RBIs in his first season with Seattle and is a major part of the team's run for the 2014 post season. In addition to Hall-of-Fame level stats, Cano has been remarkably healthy, playing no less than 159 games for each of the last seven seasons, and missing only five games in 2014 (bruised foot and hand).

Cano spent the first nine of his ten major league seasons with the New York Yankees, for whom he posted a .309/.355/.504 line, was runner-up Rookie of theYear (2005), and won five Silver Slugger and two Gold Glove awards, as well as multiple appearances on MVP lists. The Yankees signed him in 2001 out of the Dominican Republic and he made his debut May 3, 2005. When he became a free agent after the 2013 season, the Yankees declined to re-sign their 30-year-old star. He went to Seattle, signing a controversial ten year, $240 million contract that takes him through 2023, when he will be 41. There is no doubt that if Cano can continue anything like his career record for his new team he is on track for the Hall of Fame.
