Update: Robinson Cano day-to-day after taking pitch to left hand


9:11pm: X-rays were negative and Cano is day-to-day, the Yankees announced. I have to imagine he’ll miss a game or three, but ex-friggin-hale. That is a huge bullet they just dodged.

8:46pm: They’re calling it a “left hand contusion” is a moment, but Cano is heading to the hospital for x-rays. Apparently they don’t have an x-ray machine in the ballpark.

7:25pm: This is bad. Robinson Cano left tonight’s game after being hit by a pitch in the left hand on a check swing. It was pretty much a direct hit. Robbie initially stayed in the game to run the bases before exiting after the inning. Hopefully it’s just a precaution with the big early lead. Losing Cano for any length of time would be disastrous, obviously. Fingers crossed.

    I think his finger or hand is broken and that’ll be the fatal blow. They survived without every other regular but can’t survive without Robbie. It didn’t look good.

  2. JThizz says:

    The worst part about the hit is that it was Happ who hit him – the same Happ who broke Granderson’s hand and caused him to miss half the season during spring training. That + the dude’s ERA leads me to believe he is not fit for the MLB at this moment.

    Well fuck me

    I’ve got my fingers and toes crossed.

  5. trr says:

    Let’s not get ahead of ourselves people…

  6. your mom says:

    Happ you piece of fucking shit.

  7. Kevin says:

    If Cano goes down,our already slim chances of getting to the post season will be ensured.

  8. Kevin says:

    If Cano goes down,our already slim chances of getting to the post season will be ensured of not happening.

  9. Dalek Jeter says:

    Didn’t Happ do Granderson as well? this mother fucker.

  10. Bartolo's Colon says:

    This is not going to be good news, taking way too long. i would imagine it takes no longer than 5 minutes for the entire xray process.

  11. Elton Cod says:

    If Cano goes out for the season this will be a depressing year. I think we should start requiring all players to wear hand-helmets at the plate, to prevent these kinds of tragedies from happening ever again.

  12. UncleArgyle says:

    Yeah, Cano done would end his and the Yankees season. He NEEDS to be fine

  13. Larry says:

    Didn’t Happ take a line drive to the head? I don’t wish this on anyone but I’m starting to think he deserved it and deserves another.

  14. trr says:

    Hope we hear something soon

  15. J.A. Happ says:

    Sorry Yankee fans. I’m a giant douchebag with obviously no pitch control.

  16. Jigga says:

    Can somebody please plunk Encarnacion? Bring in Chamberlain. That’s all he’s good for

    // only slightly kidding

  17. NT says:

    Well, shit. If Cano is done then not only do we say goodbye to our playoff chances but we also don’t get to see Kabak eat his hat. Is there anything positive to take from this season?

  18. 28 this year says:

    Why does it seem that the Yankees get hit more than any of guys they play? This is absurd. Happ should be banished for lack of control. Screw intention, punish him for clearly having no idea where the ball is going.

  19. Captain Turbo says:

    Someone break Happ’s kneecap. Just kidding. Maybe.

  20. Adam says:

    One of the reasons I loved Tony LaRussa – he didn’t give a fuck if it was an “accident” hitting one of his guys, he would always get you back. Eye for an eye is the way it should be.

  21. SDB says:

    Can going on base with the HBP contribute to the Kabak hat watch/walk count?

  22. Frank Costanza says:

    I feel like the fact that it’s taking this long for any news is a bad sign.

  23. nsalem says:

    Happ has faced over 2800 Major League batters and this is the 13th man he has hit. Top say this was on purpose is ignorant as it is to suggest retribution/

  24. Slu says:

    Yes! X-Rays negative!!!!!!

  25. Pasta Stumbling Sojo says:

    Negative x-rays bitchz!!

  26. Kyle m says:

    X-rays negative!

  27. I'm a looser baby so why don't you kill me? says:

    When is this mother fucking cock sucking two balled bitch Happ going to get the living shit beat out of him for intentionally* beaning Yankees? I mean seriously. For fuck sake.

    Please excuse the vulgarity but I am drunk and pissed. Or piss drunk. Or. Something.

    *may not be true

  28. Get Phelps Up says:

    Dr. Eddard swings and misses!

  29. Wj says:

    X rays negative, day to day

  30. Kyle m says:

    Thanks Michael Kay for pausing way too long after saying “X-rays on cano…”

    Almost had a heart attack.

  31. Wheels says:

    Good news but let’s be frank, we can’t afford to lose Cano for even a game right now. Gotta win tomorrow

  32. Eddard says:

    Thank God Robbie is ok. But now Nuney’s down. My heart has stopped.
