X-rays negative on Cano’s right foot

By

4:58pm: Cano confirmed he didn’t have the x-ray yesterday, he had it in New York during the A’s series. Either way, he’s fine.

3:30pm: Well this kinda came out of nowhere. George King reports that x-rays on Robinson Cano‘s right foot came back negative yesterday. He fouled a ball off the foot during the Athletics series, then re-aggravated the injury when he slipped covering first base against the Rockies. “The tests were negative,” he said. “Everything is good.”

Cano, 30, is hitting .311/.359/.585 (150 wRC+) with nine homers in 145 plate appearances this year, and so far he’s played every inning of every game in the field save for two innings at the end of one of those blowout wins over the Indians. Eduardo Nunez‘s injury means the team can’t give Cano even a half-day off at DH right now. It goes without saying that losing Robbie for any length of time would have been very bad even if the rest of the team was perfectly healthy.

    Also, we can confirm that CC Sabathia’s arm is still attached to his body, Mariano Rivera has full brain function, and John Sterling is physically able to still make home run calls. Whew.

    Ignorance is bliss, I’m glad I didn’t know about this until after I found out he’s okay.

    “so far he’s played every inning of every game at second base save for two innings at the end of one of those blowout wins over the Indians.”

    Didn’t he shift to SS for one inning early in the season?
