Wednesday night marked the first time this season Robinson Cano wasn’t in the Yankees lineup but the All-Star second baseman said he is hopeful he can return for tomorrow night’s game against the Orioles at Yankee Stadium. “The swelling has decreased now we have to wait until Friday. It’s good we’re off tomorrow” Cano said before the Yankees’ 7-2 loss to the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. “I’ll swing in the cage and see how it feels try to get ready for batting practice. I would say during batting practice I would know.” Cano was drilled on the left hand by a 90 mph fastball from lefty J.A. Happ in the first inning of Tuesday’s 7-1 Yankees victory and left the game between innings. X-rays were negative and Cano spent yesterday receiving treatment. Manager Joe Girardi said he believed Cano would be ready by tomorrow. “In my heart I think he’s going to be in there but if he’s not we’re going to have to deal with it” Girardi said. * Eduardo Nunez originally was scheduled to replace Cano at second base but was a late scratch because of a right knee injury suffered while moving on the artificial turf on Tuesday. Nunez will undergo an MRI exam Thursday Girardi said. Before batting practice Girardi said Nunez was “50/50’’ to play and removed him from the lineup after Nunez didn’t look good during pregame warmups. “[Nunez] couldn’t run full speed” Girardi said. “I just said ‘I don’t want you going out there feeling compromised if your knee is not stable so I’m going to scratch you.’
