The Mariners-Rangers game is still in progress, but Robinson Cano has already done a couple games’ worth of work. Cano has two homers on the day, a two run homer in the first and another two-run homer in the ninth, driving in Kyle Seager both times.
That gives Cano four homers and seven RBI in 13 at bats over three games so far. Indeed, those four homers are all four of the hits he’s had on the year. He’s walked once too. That puts him on pace for . . .

This just happened moments ago, but there could be some bad news for the Toronto Blue Jays: Josh Donaldson left this afternoon’s game against the Rays with an apparent leg injury.
Dexter Fowler got a lot of that “good ballplayer, better man” stuff in the offseason when people talked about his free agency status. I tend to ignore a lot of that because people say that about a lot of people. You really can’t know what kind of a person is until you get to know them. I’ve heard he’s a really nice guy, but I’ve never talked to him so you never know.
But there’s one person who knows Dexter Fowler VERY well. His daughter. And while she may be a bit biased, she seems to be making a very strong case that Dexter Fowler is someone you just want to hug. Or at least she does.
Warning: it’s getting a bit misty in this room. Must be the dust and cat dander. Yes, that’s it.
