With a 15.3 average ADP in drafts this spring according to Fantasy Pros, Cano has to be the most disappointing hitter in fantasy.

Seattle signed outfielder Nelson Cruz to protect Cano and provide more depth, but ironically, Cruz is the one excelling and Cano is struggling mightily. The second baseman is slashing .239/.280/.328 with just two home runs and 19 RBI in 238 at-bats.

Cano only has 16 home runs in 216 games with the Mariners. Owners can blame the pitcher-friendly Safeco Field all they want for the lack of power, but that batting average isn’t acceptable in any park.
