Robinson Canó is living a nightmare and starring in a journey in the 2022 MLB season, in which he has not been able to establish himself, declaring himself a free agent this Thursday at the end of his agreement with the Atlanta Braves.
Canó decided to test the market again months before the end of the regular season, refusing to go to the Triple-A branch of the Braves after being placed on assignment and not being claimed by any organization on waivers.
The Dominican, who returned to the MLB in 2022 from his second doping suspension, barely batted .150 with a home run and 4 RBIs in his short stay in Atlanta, which intends to compete in the playoffs and has no room for Canó this season. .
Canó has already been cut by the New York Mets and the San Diego Padres, so it will be difficult for him to get a new agreement with a contending team.
The infielder has been invited to the All-Star Game 8 times, he has won the Gold Glove 2 times, the Silver Slugger 5 times and the 2009 World Series, but his best moment seems to be in the past. The retirement bells are already starting to ring.
