Robinson Cano: Now an American Who Can’t Hit in the Playoffs SHARE: Tweet New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, one of the best hitters in the major leagues, became a U.S. citizen on Tuesday. “Very proud day for me, I just became a US citizen, God bless America!,” the All-Star Dominican tweeted. Congratulations, Robbie! Robinson Cano on WhoSay The American Dream: about 200 million U.S. dollars are coming his way. Cano had an outstanding year for the Yankees, but as the newly minted citizen hit the postseason, Cano became mired in an 0-for-26 slump that now ranks as the longest hitless streak ever put up in a single playoffs.
