Robinson Canó Belts 300th Career Home Run
Robinson Canó continues to add to his already impressive accomplishments in his 13-year Major League career. On Thursday night vs. the Rangers at Safeco Field, Canó belted his 300th career home run.
Canó becomes the 146th player in Major League history to hit at least 300 career home runs. Of those 146 players, only 16 have reached the 300 home run-plateau while also posting a career batting average of .300 or better and while collecting at least 1,000 runs, 2,000 hits, 500 doubles and 1,000 RBI.
Canó becomes the latest member of that exclusive club, joining Edgar Martinez, Hank Aaron, George Brett, Miguel Cabrera, Lou Gehrig, Todd Helton, Rogers Hornsby, Chipper Jones, Willie Mays, Stan Musial, Albert Pujols, Manny Ramirez, Babe Ruth, Al Simmons and Ted Williams.
Canó becomes the 8th player to hit his 300th career home run with the Mariners, joining Willie Horton (1979), Ken Griffey Jr. (1998), Jay Buhner (2000), Edgar Martinez (2004), Richie Sexson (2008), Raul Ibañez (2013) and Nelson Cruz (2017). Canó and Cruz are the 10th pair of teammates in Major League history to hit their respective 300th career home runs for the same team in the same season. The last pair of teammates to do so was Toronto’s Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista in 2016.
