Cano’s CT scan comes back negative

MLB to investigate Colon procedure
Yankees RISPFAIL their way to crappy loss

Update (12:13 a.m.): After getting in the head with a Nathan Adcock pitch with two outs in the fifth, Robinson Cano left tonight’s game, and the Yanks sent him for a CT scan. The results came back negative, and the Yanks’ second baseman is listed as day-to-day right now. MLB has implemented a mandatory seven-day disabled list for any player who suffers a concussion, but Cano will avoid that week-long stint. With the Red Sox on deck, that’s good news for the offensively-challenged Bombers.

After getting hit, Cano was on the ground for a few minutes but walked off the field on his own power as Eduardo Nuñez replaced him as the runner at first. While Cano was seen smiling in the dugout afterwards, I wouldn’t be surprised if he got the day off tomorrow just to be safe. Concussion or not, head injuries are nothing to mess around with.

    Shit. That’s never good, but he seems okay…keep him in a safe cool place so he can play tomorrow.

  • Ari G

    no way he doesnt go on the dl

    • Thomas Cassidy

      How not? It was a hit to the head he will be fine. He didn’t tear a hammy. He will play Friday.

      oh really?

      • Thomas Cassidy

        “Seen smiling in the dugout.” He’s fine.

        • Chris

          That doesn’t mean he’s fine.

          • Thomas Cassidy

            It seems to me like he is. If he was hurt he’d be in the clubhouse or getting an MRI. Not laughing and having fun in the dugout.

              This dude used to party every night with Melky. A pitch to the head is nothing.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    We’re gonna need him for Boston.

    Cano is such a presence on the field and such a privilege it is to see him play. All I can think of is the great players cut down in their youth from a HBP or that Gil McDougal line drive that took down Herb Score. Scary scary scary — the moreso because of who it was. That shit-ass KC pitcher should spend the night in Rikers. Lock the fucker up… but I digress…

      lol, this is a contact sport not checkers

  • Ari G

    now either chamberlain or rivera is injured crap

    • Matt

      Or maybe it’s because Joba has pitched 3 times in the last 4 days?

      • The Big City of Dreams

        yea that too :)

  • bonestock94

    It didn’t seem that serious despite the location of the hit.

    Saw it live, looked scary but he was smiling after he got up. Still he spent a minute or two on the ground. Wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up on the 7day concussion DL

    Agreed.

  • OldYanksFan

    What a waste of an evening. Talk about giving the game away.

  • Tom”the fat guy” Lin

    Any reason why Joba didn’t come into the game today?
    If he is fine, then I won’t be too angry about today’s game…

  • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan

    Clearly he was just shaken up. This was his first ball to the head.
