Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano leaves game with dizziness

Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano exited Sunday’s game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park with dizziness while in the field.

According to MLB.com, Cano motioned to manager Lloyd McClendon while the Mariners were on defense in the bottom of the third inning. McClendon met him on the infield and walked him to the dugout.

Cano was 0-for-2 in the game and scored a run after grounding into a fielder’s choice in the first inning.

He wasn’t hit in the head during the game, but the Mariners did not have any further information in their announcement.

Cano came into the game second in the American League with a .330 batting average, trailing Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve (.334).

In his first year with the Mariners, Cano was elected to the All-Star Game in July, his sixth All-Star Game nod overall and his fifth in a row.

He is hitting .330/.397/.470 in 122 games with 66 runs, 29 doubles, 11 home runs, 70 RBI and a career-best 10 stolen bases.

He signed a 10-year, $240 million free agent contract with the M’s in December after playing nine seasons with the New York Yankees. He was a two-time Gold Glove winner for the Yankees and finished third in the AL Most Valuable Player voting in 2010.

The Mariners came into Sunday with a 70-58 record, leading the Detroit Tigers by a game, the Yankees by 3½ games, the Toronto Blue Jays by 4½ games and the Cleveland Indians by five games for the second AL wild-card playoff spot.
