Robinson Cano will play third baseman for the New York Mets in the Major Leagues in the 2022 season, he said when interviewed prior to the game between the Estrellas Orientales and the Águilas Cibaeñas, on the day of the winter ball on November 12, in the Cibao stadium in Santiago.
“They sent me to practice in the antechamber and intermediate,” said Canó, who was suspended for the 2021 season for the use of a prohibited substance.
“The Mets sent me to play third and second,” said the designated hitter for the Eastern team.
Major League Baseball arranged to suspend Cano for a season for repeating substance use by testing positive for Stanozolol, for which he did not receive his $ 24 million salary.
In 2018, as part of the Seattle Mariners, he missed 80 games when he tested positive for a diuretic furosemide, which is used to alter performance.
“The Mets sent me to play third and second,” said who serves as the designated hitter of the eastern team in Dominican baseball.
He indicated that he has been practicing and that next week he will play defense with the green team.
In 16 major league seasons, Canó is hitting .303 with 1,302 RBIs and two Gold Gloves.
Play with the Estrellas Orientales team in the Dominican winter ball. Represented the country with the Águilas Cibaeñas in the recent Caribbean Series won by the Dominicans, held in Mexico.
