SEATTLE (AP) — Robinson Cano knows it will be awkward from the moment he walks into Yankee Stadium and has to figure out the route to the visitors' clubhouse for the first time in his career.

And that's before he takes the field in the Bronx wearing something other than pinstripes.

After signing his $240 million, 10-year contract with Seattle in the offseason, Cano will return to New York for the first time as a member of the Mariners on Tuesday night when they open a three-game series against the Yankees.

Cano figures the reaction will be mixed. He was supposed to be the next great Yankees player to spend his career in New York, following the lead of Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada and the soon-to-be retiring Derek Jeter.

Players simply don't give up the limelight of New York to go be isolated in the Pacific Northwest.
