After a tough start to his Mets career in 2019, Robinson Canó will report to Spring Training in February looking to prove that he can remain healthy and productive as New York’s starting second baseman. Next season, his playing time will be in the hands of new manager Carlos Beltrán.

Canó was traveling in Europe when Beltrán’s hiring was announced on Nov. 1. He says he reached out to congratulate Beltrán, but that there has not been much communication between them since.
