New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano sustained a bruised left hand when he was struck by a pitch Tuesday night in the first inning against the Toronto Blue Jays. Precautionary X-rays were negative, and the Yankees said he is day to day. Cano was removed from the game shortly after he was hit, and he was diagnosed with a bruised left hand. He was hit near the wrist on the opposite side of the thumb by left-hander J.A. Happ. After a lengthy examination by trainer Steve Donohue, Cano stayed in to run the bases and scored on a three-run homer by Alfonso Soriano. Cano, who is batting .305 with 24 home runs and 85 RBIs, then left the dugout with Donohue. Eduardo Nunez replaced him in the bottom half of the inning. Cano is the second Yankees player to be hit by a pitch from Happ this year. Outfielder Curtis Granderson missed 38 games with a broken right wrist after Happ struck him during a spring training game in February.
