Robinson Cano heading for X-rays on left hand
Robinson Cano is going to have an X-ray performed on his left hand tonight in Toronto after he was hit by a sixth-inning pitch in the Yankees’ 11-4 win over the Blue Jays.
Cano finished the game, but he exited the clubhouse immediately after the game with assistant trainer Mark Littlefield, wearing an ice wrap on the hand.
Joe Girardi said he believes Cano will be fine and the Yankees tried to use a fluoroscope machine at Rogers Centre that revealed no issues, but the Yankees would prefer to have an X-ray done elsewhere to make sure. Results are expected in the morning.
“I feel like I look at Robbie and that dude’s made of steel,” Nick Swisher said. “It seems like he plays all the time. Anytime you’re talking about hands, you get a little concerned, but after I saw him staying in the game, I felt a little better.”
