What Pros Wear: Robinson Cano (Bat, Batting Gloves, Cleats, Glove, Sunglasses, Guards)
Wilson A2000 1786ST in Saddle Tan
Spalding loses its biggest customer as Cano moves into a Wilson in Seattle. At first we had this as a DP15, but our source at Wilson helped us out, its an “out of the box” Wilson A2000 1786ST meaning that when Wilson showed up to Seattle camp in Spring Training, Cano grabbed this one as-is and whipped it into game shape. From what we hear, there may be a custom version that slides in at some point but for now Cano is rocking the Saddle Tan 1786ST. This model is available, but with a black web.
Cano switched over from the Show x2 (different lenses) this year, wearing a navy/white exclusive version, though there are similar colorways available at the above link.
Nike Air Max MVP Elite 3/4 Metal in Black/White/Teal
We were curious to see what Cano might wear having been freed from the shackles of Yankee’s dress code, but Cano has only slightly modified his 2013 Nikes by adding a little teal flair on the soles. These are exclusives, though you can customize your own on NIKEiD.com.
Cano has moved around a little bit in the lumber department, but with Seattle we’ve only seen Sam Bat. Cano has his own signature cut, and its available online. I know that the layers of stick on Cano’s bat make the photo above tough to figure out, but you CAN see a piece of the bat wing, Sam Bat’s trademark. Trust us, we’re professionals.
Such a sick color. Unfortunately, exclusive. He also wears a Navy/White pair that is unavailable, too. COME ON, NIKE! WE CAN’T EVEN GET NAVY?!
Spalding Elbow Guard
You can see it well here from his time with the Yanks. Unfortunately, this one is exclusive to Robby so far as we know.
Robby flirted with Evoshield’s leg guard early in the season but has since gone back to his NY staple, the Cosby brand with the white straps.
Cosby, also seen on A-Rod, wins the award for most archaic website, but they also must make a pretty good shin guard if Robby and Alex are wearing them. This is available by phone through the website.
ProHitter in White
Cano also wears a ProHitter hitting aid on his thumb to keep the bat in his fingertips and maximize whip. These are worn by hundreds of Major League hitters and are very available.
Who isn’t wearing one of these?
