Found August 29, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The New York Yankees received a scare Tuesday night when second baseman Robinson Cano was hit on the hand by a pitch from Toronto Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ. X-rays later came back negative, and Cano was diagnosed with a bruised hand. The Yankees avoided immediate catastrophe as the diagnosis didn't involve a break or fracture, but it's still unclear when Cano will rejoin the team's lineup, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. Immediately after he was hit on the hand, Cano expected the worst. He told reporters that he was scared, thinking that his hand was broken. "I was [scared] right away -- I was hurt," Cano said. "I was pretty concerned. [First-base coach] Mick [Kelleher] asked me at first base if I thought it was broken; it was close to the bone. Maybe it missed the bone by an inch. Thank God it was nothing worse." The sequence was eerily similar to a spring training contest during which Happ fractured Curtis Granderson's right forearm, causing him to miss the start of the regular season. New York also lost infielder Jayson Nix to a fractured left hand last week which resulted from being hit by a pitch from Toronto's R.A. Dickey. Luckily for New York, Cano's injury wasn't as severe. It's unclear if he'll be ready to return in time for tomorrow's weekend opener against the Baltimore Orioles, but, at least at this point, the Yankees believe the second baseman will avoid a stint on the disabled list.
