Since August 10th, including tonight’s game, Robinson Cano is batting .280 in his last 186 At Bats. Now, two-eighty ain’t terrible. But, it’s not the .330 that he was batting (on the season) on August 10th. And, in fact, his overall season batting average is now .314 (after tonight’s oh’fer).
If Cano plays all three of the Yankees remaining games and goes one for thirteen in those contests, his season average will be .309 this year. Again, that’s far from poor. And, it’s one point better than his lifetime average (.308) coming into tonight’s game. But, boy, remember when it looked like he was going to bat three-fifty this year?
