Robinson Cano was scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with the Seattle Mariners’ Triple-A affiliate on Monday night as he prepares for his return from his 80-game suspension for violating baseball’s joint drug agreement.
The Mariners said Cano was expected to play with Tacoma against Colorado Springs on Monday and Tuesday. He might play in some games for Single A Everett later in the week. Cano is eligible to rejoin the Mariners next Tuesday while the team is at the Coliseum.
Cano is expected to play first, second and third base during his rehab assignment, Seattle manager Scott Servais said.
