FILE - In this Saturday, June 6, 2015, file photo, Seattle Mariners' Robinson Cano, right, walks on the field after he grounded into a double play with the bases loaded to end the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Mariners' Willie Bloomquist (8) was left on base on the play. Cano isn't supposed to hear boos at home. It wasn't part of the deal when he signed for $240 million and 10 years in Seattle. But with the underperforming Mariners having the second-worst record in the American League, Cano's struggles have become the focus for the floundering franchise.
