Update (4:16pm): Cano left the game with a bruised left hand and is day-to-day. Joe Girardi said he hurt it catching a sinker-like pick off throw from Ivan Nova. Jack Curry says precautionary x-rays came back negative and Robbie plans on playing tomorrow. Exhale.
Original Post (4:05pm): Robinson Cano was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning of today’s game for an unknown reason. Eric Chavez came in and took the at-bat, then Eduardo Nunez headed out to the field in the next half inning. There was no obvious injury or anything like that, and I don’t need to tell you how bad it would be for the Yankees to lose Cano for any length of time. We’ll update this post once we know more.
