Update: X-Rays on Cano negative following hit-by-pitch


8:59pm: MLB just announced that x-rays were negative, in case you didn’t believe Rosenthal. It’s officially a right quad contusion.

8:48pm: Ken Rosenthal hears Cano was hit more on the quad than the knee and that he is expected to be fine. Ex-frickin-hale.

8:27pm: Robinson Cano left tonight’s All-Star Game after taking a 97 mph Matt Harvey fastball to the right knee in the first inning. He stayed in to run the bases at first, but left after one batter. Stay tuned for updates.

    Who the hell in the organization opened an umbrella indoors after breaking a mirror?

    gotta be a bad joke.

  3. hogsmog says:

    Yeah I know this is just as likely to happen in any other game, but right now, fuck the fucking all star game.

  4. forensic says:

    FWIW, it was a 96 mph fastball, not 97.

    Is there anything more fitting to the season than this? Just figures…

  5. The Real Greg says:

    If he’s out any length of time, just start looking to sell.

  6. hogsmog says:

    And I felt like he was legitimately in the running for MVP this year, especially if the Yankees made the playoffs and he rode some feel-good vibes for ‘carrying a losing team’. It’ll suck if he never gets one.

    Somewhere Ben Kabak breathes a sigh of relief.

  8. SeventhAce says:


    Thing is, I laughed to myself how Kuroda not making the team was a godsend because of injury concerns and then BOOM this happens. You figured the team would have had Cano wrapped up in bubble wrap with the way the season has become…

    I wasn’t watching, the pitch that hit him…was it a wild pitch or what?

    someone needs to find that voodoo doll fast. Call the body guards to protect Mariano

    Cashman must have texed Leyland .

    Boras just answered Jay Z’s rap….. Cano you coming with me…. boras’s response…. Harvey making sure cano limpin to jigga!!!! Jigga who??? Jigga what??? We need to take out harpe in response!!!!!

  12. greg says:

    Got to rub some HGH on that knee.

  13. Robinson Tilapia says:

    Not surprised he’s fine. Walking back to the dugout like he did was very reassuring.

  14. Pasta says:

    I could not be more depressed now
    David adams come on back up

  15. Vern Sneaker says:

    Didn’t look to me like the quad, more like the leg on the outside of the knee, but whatever it’s kind of scary. Hope it’s just bruised.

  16. HateMclouth (formerly I'mVernon) says:

    He’s going to be okay? Christmas in July.

  17. Bob Michaels says:

    Looked real bad, if it swells he will miss some games.

  18. forensic says:

    MLB just announced that x-rays were negative, in case you didn’t believe Rosenthal.

    What if we don’t want to believe MLB given their recent track record of almost bribing people to give them the answers they want? Did they offer the x-ray technician a raise for a promising diagnosis?
