Cano went 4-for-5 with a double, a homer, three RBI and two runs Wednesday against the Padres.

Things still aren't on track for Cano -- he'd been 0-for-10 in the last three games entering Wednesday's action -- but he's actually been making quiet progress, homering three times in his last seven games. It doesn't look like this season is a lost cause quite yet.

Cano (forehead) is in the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Shannon Drayer of 710 AM ESPN Seattle reports. He'll play second base and bat third.

Cano was removed from Saturday's game in the seventh inning after he was struck in the head by an errant throw while the Angels were warming up. Though the situation appeared quite scary from the outset, Cano avoided a concussion and escaped with merely a welt on his foreahead, which appears to have dissipated overnight. It looks like he'll be good to go for the full game.

Cano believes he can play Sunday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

The Mariners team doctor confirmed that Cano could be ready to go on Sunday as well. The large knot on his head from the baseball had become reduced and is barely noticeable, according to Bob Dutton of the Tacoma Times Tribune. Manager Lloyd McClendon also believes Cano should be good to go Sunday.

Cano was diagnosed with a contusion on his forehead, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Cano escaped a concussion diagnosis after getting hit in the head by an errant throw while the Angels were warming up for the seventh inning. He left with dizziness and can be considered day-to-day moving forward. His status for Sunday's game remains unclear, but if he is to miss any time, Willie Bloomquist could see extended playing time.

Cano exited Sunday's game with a nasty welt on his head due to an overthrown ball during the Angels' warmup for the seventh inning, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

In what was a very odd situation, Cano was forced out of the contest by an errant throw, and was replaced by Willie Bloomquist. The team will likely do some testing to ensure Cano didn't suffer a concussion, and should provide an update on his status at some point in the near future.

Cano hit his third home run of the season, his only hit in four at-bats in Monday's loss to Kansas City.

Cano last homered on May 30th and has been hitting just .211/.235/.289 in 19 games since. Cano just can't seem to get the ball in the air any more. His 53.6 percent ground ball rate is a career high, and even if his career low HR/FB (currently 3.9 percent) does pick up, he isn't hitting enough fly balls to post the kind of power numbers he used to with the Yankees.

Cano (back) is back in the lineup Friday hitting third, MLB.com's Greg Johns reports.

He was scratched from Thursday's lineup due to back stiffness, but that seems to be a one-off thing. Cano is hitting just .237 and slugging just .327, but his track record suggests he is bound to hit more in the summer months.

Cano has been scratched from Thursday's lineup due to back stiffness, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Cano was penciled into the lineup at the third spot, but his back tightened up on him, causing manager Lloyd McClendon to scratch his star second baseman. This is the first report of Cano having back issues this season, so he should be considered day-to-day until further information is disclosed. Dustin Ackley will bat seventh and fill in for Cano at second base.

Cano is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

Cano will be rested after going 0-for-8 over the first two games of the series, dropping his line to .216/.258/.261 over the last month of action. The 32-year-old hasn't been hitting much better on the season (.239/.278/.320), with the disappearance of his power production a particularly troubling development. Willie Bloomquist will cover second base in place of Cano.

Cano went 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk and two RBI in Saturday's loss to Cleveland.

A doubly good game for the embattled star, as the long ball was only his second of the year. The base on balls is promising too, as Cano's struggles this year have included a plummeting walk rate. Perhaps the two games he missed to an illness gave Cano time to reset; we'll see if he can keep it up.
