Cano started the season with a below-average month of April, hitting just .267 with a home run and four RBI. However, the 29 year-old All-Star has improved his number every month, launching himself into the MVP discussion. 

After a torrid month of June in which he batted .340 with 11 home runs and 21 RBI, Cano has continued his hot-hitting into July with a .404 batting average, two home runs, and 11 RBI in 13 games this month. 

Overall, Cano is batting .320 with 21 home runs and 55 RBI this season. He is also sixth in the league with 61 runs scored and third with 27 doubles.
