Robinson Cano is out of a job again.

On Monday, the Atlanta Braves completed a trade to acquire infielder Ehire Adrianza from the Washington Nationals in exchange for outfielder Trey Harris. In an accompanying move, they designated Cano for assignment.

This is now the third team Cano has been axed from in 2022. The Mets designated him for assignment in May when the rosters were shrunk to 26 men. The Padres then signed him and quickly optioned him to Triple-A before trading him to the Braves. Now, he is once again headed for free agency, if he clears waivers. This time, there might not be anyone to pick him up.

Cano is batting a combined .150 this year with one home run and four RBIs. In 12 games with the Padres, his average was .091 and with the Braves he produced a -.4 WAR in nine games. Even the Gold Glove defense he was once known for appears to be fading as well.
