Robinson Cano will make his major three-game series debut against his former team, the New York Mets, at the Atlanta Braves on Monday.
Canoe, acquired by the Braves in Sunday’s trade with the San Diego Padres, will start from second base in the lineup as the Max vs. Sherzar against the Mets and bat at number nine.
Monday’s game will mark a wonderful reunion between first-place Mets and Canoe, who were hired by New York on May 2 for assignments after batting just .195 in 12 games. Despite having about $ 45 million left over from a deal with the Seattle Mariners in 2013, the Mets left Canola six days later.
Cano, 39, sat down to give his second suspension for performance-enhancing drugs last season. Eight times the All-Star has batted just .091 (3 for 33) in 12 games in his short career with the Padres, but he did well at Triple-A El Paso, where he scored three home runs and 333 runs. 20 RBI. 21 games.
Cano, who was added to the Atlanta roster before Monday, has statistics to share playing time with Orlando Archie this season. .252 with three homers and 17 RBI in 123 at-bats. The Braves also returned outfielder Adam Duvall from the paternity list on Monday, while infielder Phil Goselin was given the assignment and infielder Mike Ford was selected for Triple-A Gwyneth in the respective moves.
The Rising Braves star is without second baseman Ozzy Albiz, who suffered a leg fracture last month and is relying on Arsia in his place. Braves manager Brian Snyder has said he is happy with Arsenal, especially with his defense.
Facing a 10.5-game deficit in the NL East standings after a slow start to the season, the Braves (52-35) have won 29 of their last 37 games and are just 1.5 games behind the Huh Mets (53-33) on Monday.
The Mets got a canoe from the Mariners in the 2018 blockbuster trade that brought them closer to all-star Edwin Diaz. New York sent five players to Seattle under contract – including valuable outfield prospect Jared Kelenick, a total of 6 picks in the 2018 amateur draft – and agreed to assume the remaining $ 100 million on Cano’s final five-year contract. Time
Cano played 168 matches for the Mets. 269 with 24 homers, 72 RBI and .765 OPS.
