Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano is in a 4-for-27 slump at the plate that has dropped his season average down to .253.
Fantasy Tip: Cano ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has struggled early in the season before, and it took his bat a while to heat up during his first season in Seattle last year. Still, you may want to hold off on starting Cano until he works the kinks out of his slump or whether any sort of injury is revealed (if there is one).

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano is hitless in his last 13 at-bats and has seen his batting average drop 50 points from .309 to .259. "I think he's been going outside the zone a little bit," manager Lloyd McClendon said. "He recognizes that. He's had a couple of mechanical things that probably led to that. We'll clean those up."
Fantasy Tip: Cano ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) should be fine in the long run, but you may want to avoid him at FantasyScore until he gets back on track. It doesn't help that he's facing a left-handed pitcher in Texas Rangers starter Wandy Rodriguez tonight, either. Cano had only two of his 14 home runs come off southpaws in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Cano ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) should be a daily consideration at second base for your FantasyScore lineups, especially when he's in a groove at the plate.

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano will not play in spring games until Saturday, March 14, after the death of his grandfather in the Dominican Republic.
Fantasy Tip: Cano's absence shouldn't affect his readiness for the start of the season. Cano had a power outage in his new confines with a .314-14-82 season. Second base is pretty thin, and Cano is among the top three at the position.
USA TODAY and FantasyScore sends its condolences to Cano's family and friends.

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano is slimmer this spring, and he's dropped 13 pounds to weigh 212 pounds.
Fantasy Tip: The drop in weight could be another reason to hesitate on selecting Cano as your starting second baseman early in drafts. However, even with a shaky power profile to begin with in Seattle, he remains the No. 1 fantasy second baseman on the board.
