Mariners 2B Robinson Cano to return from four-game absence on Monday to face Yankees
Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is back in the lineup on Monday for a matchup in New York against his former Yankees team, according to the Mariners' Twitter account.
The $240 million man missed the past four games with a stomach virus and a bone bruise in his left hand. He's hitting .327 with a .371 on-base percentage this season for Seattle but has just two home runs in the past 205 at-bats.
In his five seasons with the Yankees, Cano hit a combined .314 with a .369 on-base percentage.
The Yankees (29-26) are currently second in the AL East behind the Blue Jays. The Mariners (28-28) are ahead of only the last-place Astros in the AL West.
