Robinson Cano's Career Has Hit An All-Time Low
Robinson Cano recently played his first MiLB game of 2022. The 39-year-old veteran is currently on the El Paso Chihuahuas, the Triple AAA minor league affiliate for the San Diego Padres. Cano was recently signed by the Padres after the New York Mets released him, still owing the ballplayer nearly $45 Million. The Padres picked Robinson Cano up and quickly DFA’d him to the minors, leading him to play his first non-rehab MiLB game since 2005. A video surfaced of Cano playing for the Chihuahuas wearing a SpongeBob SquarePants themed jersey, which is one of the funniest things ever. The video shows Cano driving in his teammates as he puts the hurt on the ball. This is also undoubtably an all-time low in Cano's career as anytime you get DFA'd and then have to wear a kids themed baseball jersey in a minor league game at age 39 is definitely not a good thing.
So far Cano is having a decent AAA season with the team, featuring splits of .333 / .400 / .444 with 3 RBIs. It is unclear if Cano will ever be back in the majors again this season or even in his career, Cano’s 2022 Batting Average (.149 in 24-games) alone shows he is no longer capable of giving his team solid at-bats.
