Cano an MVP finalist

Robinson Cano is among the five finalists for the AL MVP Award, as announced Wednesday night by the Baseball Writers Association of America.

Also among the top five are the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera; Josh Hamilton of the Rangers; Hamilton's teammate, Adrian Beltre; and rookie Mike Trout of the L. A. Angels.

Cano batted .313 with 33 home runs and 94 RBIs this season before falling into a horrendous slump in the postseason, in which he managed just three hits in 40 at-bats (.075). The winner will be announced on the MLB Network on Nov. 15 at 6 p.m.
