Cano finishes fifth in AL MVP race


NEW YORK -- Robinson Cano finished fifth in the voting for the American League's Most Valuable Player Award, which was won for the second straight season by Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers.

Cano finished with 150 points -- Cabrera had 385 -- and received no first- or second-place votes and only one third-place vote. Still, it was the third top-five finish for Cano in the past four seasons -- he ran third to winner Josh Hamilton and runner-up Cabrera in 2010. It's one more item on the résumé he will present to prospective buyers as he hits the free-agent market this winter. Cano batted .314 with 27 home runs and 107 RBIs for the Yankees in 2013.
