Cano Featured Yankee Card of the Week

Robinson Cano’s emergence as the No. 5 hitter makes him a hot topic. Cano hit .320/.352/.520 last year, and finished 17th in MVP voting despite batting mostly sixth or seventh in the order.

Now he’ll protect Alex Rodriguez and hit ahead of Jorge Posada.

Is this move permanent? I don’t think so. The fifth spot could be Cano, Posada or Curtis Granderson at any point this year.

But if Cano does hit behind A-Rod for the majority of the season, he’ll have a very good shot at driving in 100 runs for the first time in his career.
