Home Run Derby Participant Profile: Robinson Cano

By Scott Allen

New York Yankees second basemen Robinson Cano has power, sure.  Like the Milwaukee Brewers Rickie Weeks though, he has decent power, but not superstar power.  Cano is a star himself, but it really isn’t his HR’s that put him on the map.

Although he does have 15 HR this season and 131 for his career, he still is more of a bat for average guy.  He has 21 double and 5 triples to go along with those homers.  However, this Tuesday, it will be all about his homers in the Home Run Derby.
