Cano homered twice, both solo shots, and drew two walks in a 3-for-4 game Monday against the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

This marks Cano's fourth multi-homer game of the year, his first since June 9 against Cleveland. The second proved to be the game winner, coming in the 11th inning off Astros reliever Luke Gregerson. Cano was hitting a mediocre .259/.309/.393 in September with three home runs in 22 games heading into Monday night; he'll need to keep coming up clutch for the Mariners to sneak into the playoffs.

Cano had four hits and two RBI in a win at the Twins on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Cano has had a rocky couple weeks, but it looks like he's starting to find his groove again. He's reached base nine times in the last four games and driven in five in that span. He only has one extra-base hit in his last night games, though. With 33 homers and 30 doubles, Cano reached 30/30 for the second time in his career. One more homer will give him a career high.

Cano had two hits Tuesday, including a two-run triple, in a loss to the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Cano entered on a 2-for-24 skid. He was batting .305 on Sept. 5, but in the last two weeks entering Tuesday, he was 8-for-50 (.160) with one extra-base hit (HR). The Mariners need more of what he brought Tuesday as they chase the playoffs.

Cano (foot) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

A foul ball off the foot in his first at-bat Tuesday ultimately led to an early exit, and he's also battled some calf discomfort in recent days, but Cano will tough it out Wednesday against right-hander A.J. Griffin. The 33-year-old will look to extend his hitting streak to 11 games.

Cano was removed from Tuesday's game against the Rangers with a sore foot.

EDGE Analysis

Cano has been dealing with a sore calf of late, but it appears that was not the cause of his removal from Tuesday's contest as it originally appeared. Cano fouled a ball off his foot during his first at-bat and was able to stay in the game for a few innings before ultimately being taken out. He should have a chance to play in Wednesday's game.

Cano left Tuesday's game in the seventh inning with apparent calf discomfort, the Seattle Times' Ryan Divish reports.

EDGE Analysis

He hit a single to lead off the bottom of the seventh inning and was then replaced on the bases by Ketel Marte. The speculation among Mariners beat writers was that Cano was removed as a precaution, as he did not look to be in much pain after hitting the single. He has been both bothered by calf issues for a while, so it seems likely that he will continue to play through the discomfort going forward.

Cano walked, homered, scored twice and drove in two runs in a 2-for-5 game in a win Monday over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Cano has homered in consecutive games and is just one away from tying his career high of 33 set in 2012 with the Yankees. With nearly a full month of the season left, he should have no problem blowing past that mark. After posting slugging percentages of .454 and .446 respectively in his first two seasons as a Mariner, it was easy to wonder if Cano's power was leaving him, but he now owns a sharp .535 slugging percentage and is proving there's still plenty of pop left in his bat.
