 Biographical Information
Canó was the Dominican Republic second baseman in the 2009 World Baseball Classic, going 3 for 13 with a walk and 2 runs. He got only one hit in two games against the Dutch national team which the Dominicans lost. Both of his runs came against Panama on home runs by Miguel Olivo.
Robinson Cano was the American League Player of the Month in April 2010 after leading the circuit with a .400 batting average. He had a 23-game hitting streak in June and July of 2012, during which he hit .400, sandwiched around an appearance in the 2012 All-Star Game. It was the longest for a member of the Yankees since Derek Jeter's 25-game streak in 2006. He had another characteristically-great season, hitting .313/.379/.550 in 161 games, with 48 doubles and 33 homers, scoring 105 and driving in 94 runs, making him the team's best all-around offensive force. Indeed, his 149 OPS+ was the highest of his career. He ran into a deep slump in the postseason, however, going 2 for 22 in the ALDS, and then making outs in his first 13 at-bats in the ALCS; he had an 0 for 25 streak between Game 2 of the ALDS, when he hit a 1st-inning double against Wei-Yin Chen of the Baltimore Orioles to drive in a run, and Game 3 of the ALCS, when he hit a 9th-inning single off Phil Coke of the Detroit Tigers.
Canó was the MVP of the 2013 World Baseball Classic, leading the Dominican team to an undefeated record; he was the first position player to win the award as Daisuke Matsuzaka had won in the first two World Baseball Classics. Canó had hit .469/.514/.781 and led the Classic in doubles (4, tied with Carlos Beltrán and Nelson Cruz), total bases (25, 6 ahead of runners-up José Dariel Abreu and Andrelton Simmons) and hits (15, 3 ahead of #2 Ángel Pagán). He had six runs and six RBI in eight games. He set a new Classic record for hits, breaking Nobuhiko Matsunaka's mark. Highlights included a 3-RBI, 3-hit effort in a win over Venezuela, 3 hits and a homer (versus Jose de la Torre) against Puerto Rico, 3 hits and a homer (off Tiago Da Silva) in a 5-4 close win over Italy. He was MVP of his pool in both rounds 1 and 2.
