Update: Robinson Cano day-to-day after taking pitch to left handBy
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.
