It's Official: The End of The Line In San Diego For 8-Time All-Star

Could this be the end of the line for a former 8-time All-Star? The San Diego Padres have released 39-year-old Robinson Cano after only two weeks with the team. 

In 12 games with the Padres, Cano only managed to hit .091 (3-for-33) with 10 strikeouts and one walk. The Padres had picked him up after the New York Mets released him in mid-May.  

Assuming that Cano refuses a minor league assignment—which he can do based on his service time—he'll become a free agent once again.

Cano missed the entire 2021 season due to a suspension for a failed drug test. 

In addition to being an 8-time All-Star, Cano is also a 5-time Silver Slugger, and two-time Gold Glove winner at second base. He's a .300 hitter over the course of his 17-year big league career (.301), with an .840 OPS, 335 HR and 1,306 RBIs.

He spent nine seasons with the New York Yankees, five years with the Seattle Mariners, and two years with the New York Mets before his season-long drug suspension. In 12 games this season with the Mets, he hit .195.
