Analysis: Amid lusty boos from a modest crowd on a rainy, 46-degree night, Cano began his first game in the Bronx since joining Seattle this winter for $240 million with a wink - at Yankees starter CC Sabathia. Cano extended his hitting streak to eight games with an infield single in the seventh inning. He's batting .387 (12 for 31) during that run and .296 overall.
|Apr. 29 5:19 PM PT6:19 PM MT7:19 PM CT8:19 PM ET20:19 ET0:19 GMT8:19 5:19 PM MST7:19 PM EST7:49 PM VEN4:19 UAE (+1)7:19 PM CT-Cano drew loud boos Tuesday night in his first at-bat at Yankee Stadium since signing a $240 million contract with the Seattle Mariners last winter.
Analysis: The five-time All-Star struck out swinging and the fans mocked him with cheers in his first at-bat. When Cano took his position at second base, the Bleacher Creatures didn't chant his name, as they did for so long. Instead, they shouted "you sold out!"
|Apr. 27 2:32 PM PT3:32 PM MT4:32 PM CT5:32 PM ET17:32 ET21:32 GMT5:32 2:32 PM MST4:32 PM EST5:02 PM VEN1:32 UAE (+1)4:32 PM CT-Cano is 9 for 22 during a six-game hitting streak.

Analysis: Cano owns a career-low .681 OPS and his new club has lost seven in a row. Leaving the storied Yankees for the M's seems like a big mistake and hopefully, fantasy owners bailed when he made the switch.

Analysis: Not only is Cano slugging just .352, his average has slid down to an unimpressive .268. You obviously have to be patient if you're a Cano owner. For those without him, it may be wise to try to buy low from a disgruntled owner.
