 AS YOU KNOW
Robinson Cano
currently ranks 2nd in the American League with a .400 on-base percentage, which is also the highest in a single season in his career...
BUT DID YOU KNOW?
...he is on pace to become only the 8th Mariners player (done 21x) in club history to have an on-base percentage of at least .400 in a single season?...Cano’s OBP is also the highest in a single season by a Mariner since Ichiro Suzuki 󿬁nished the 2004 season with a .414 OBP.
