The Best Lefthanded Batters and Lefthanded Pitchers in Baseball

Robinson Cano

Current Best Lefthanded Batters

Robinson Cano is a righthanded throwing second-baseman who has completed 14 years in the major leagues, 9 years with the New York Yankees and the past 5 with Seattle.  He currently has 2470 hits in 8112 times at bat for a .304 batting average, with 534 doubles, 311 home runs, and 1233 runs batted in.  

Cano has been an American League All-Star 8 times, has played at least 156 games in 11 consecutive years (2007 to 2017), and has been on a pace to become the next player to reach the magic number of 3000 hits.  He served an 80 game suspension during the 2018 season for violating the league rules on Performance Enhancing Drugs.  The suspension broke his streak, delayed his pursuit of 3000 hits and may tarnish his image as one of the best players in the game.
