Cano remained in the game and hobbled to first base, and afterward underwent X-rays that came back negative.
Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York writes that Cano “hobbled around the Yankees’ clubhouse, looking like Willis Reed in 1970,” but the second baseman seemed confident that he’d be in the lineup Friday.
Today’s off day comes at a good time for Cano, who’s missed just one game all season while hitting .305 with 26 homers and an .880 OPS. Dating back to 2007 he’s played 787 of a possible 796 games, which is the third-most in baseball behind only Prince Fielder (790) and Adrian Gonzalez (788).
