New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was taken for precautionary X-rays after being struck on the hand by a pitch Tuesday night. Cano was removed from the game against the Toronto Blue Jays in the first inning, and was initially 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.
