Cano’s CT scan comes back negative

By

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.

    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…

    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

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

    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…

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