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.
