The Atlanta Braves officially acquired Robinson Cano on Sunday night.
Atlanta purchased Cano the former Cano San Diego and the latter only received cash in exchange.
Cano is playing well in the minors following the time his demotion to the New York Mets earlier this season.
He’s played in 21 games for the El Paso Chihuahuas (the triple-A affiliate of the Padres) and has put three home runs as well as 32 hits with a .333 batsman’s average.
MLB fans are thrilled to be able to Cano returning to the NL East.
“The Braves trading for Robinson Cano (who’s still in a contract that the Mets pay the majority of)
in the evening before they play on the field for the first time this season is one of the greatest backhanded sports rivals that has ever been seen,” one fan said.
Cano will attempt to score his first strike against the team he played for Monday night. The first pitch is scheduled to start at 7:20 p.m. ET.
