Robinson Kano’s return was his first success.
According to the Mets, Kano, who played winter ball in the Dominican Republic, was removed from the Estrellas Orientales list due to a back injury after he was suspended in the 2021 season due to a PED violation.
The team said in a statement that 39-year-old Kano “has been prescribed physical therapy and will be reviewed weekly.”
Through six games, the Cano was 7-for-26, with no additional base hits.
The Mets owe Kano about $ 20 million for the next two seasons, but when they sign Javier Baez to a new contract, there is no clear place for Kano to play every day – unless the National League accepts DH next season. collective bargaining.
Team president Sandy Alderson put forward the idea of putting Canoe in third place, but he only played two games in his career.
There is also the issue of Cano’s return from another PED breakdown.
“I think how they take it will depend on how he behaves and how he explains himself between now and the spring session,” Alderson said at GM meetings.
This is the latest failure since the ominous trade that brought Kano and Edwin Diaz to Queens in exchange for 22-year-old center-back Jarred Kelenich, who made his sailing debut last season. After the first fight, Kelenic finished in 29 games in September with seven homers and .854 OPS.
