KANSAS CITY – Robinson Cano notched a significant milestone Friday night. In the top of the first inning against the Royals, he hit a double down the right field line, the 500th of his career.

The game was stopped briefly as second base was taken from the field and replaced, and then the ball was recovered and taken out of play.

Cano joins Albert Pujols (613), Adrian Beltre (605), Carlos Beltran (557) and Miguel Cabrera (540) as the only active Major League Baseball players with 500 doubles or more. With the double he is now tied with John Olerud and Goose Goslin for 61st in doubles on the all-time list. He is just the seventh second baseman in the history of the game to reach the 500 milestone.

While leg issues have slowed him the majority of the year, Cano has recorded 21 doubles so far this season. He trails Edgar Martinez by just 14 on the all-time list.
