By Brent Stecker
Robinson Cano will return Tuesday to Yankee Stadium for the first time since leaving the Yankees for the Seattle Mariners last offseason, but he’ll check off another first in New York on Monday.
Cano, the Mariners’ $240 million second baseman, will appear on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on Monday night. The other guests are actress Emma Stone and country musician Keith Urban.
In his first season in Seattle, Cano leads the team with a .301 average and .353 on-base percentage. He also has one home run, five doubles, 10 runs scored, 11 RBIs and a .740 OPS in 24 games.
Cano, 31, played in New York for the first nine seasons of his MLB career, where he was named an All-Star five times and won one World Series championship.
