Robinson Cano departed Tuesday night’s game versus the Blue Jays after taking a J.A. Happ pitch off his left hand in the top of the first inning. But the early word from the Yankees’ medical staff is good.

According to MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch, the star second baseman only has a left hand contusion, though he was sent to a local Toronto hospital for precautionary X-rays because there is no X-ray machine at the Blue Jays’ Rogers Centre.

We will pass along word if the diagnosis changes.

Cano, a free agent this winter, has hit .305 with an .891 OPS, 24 home runs and 85 RBI in 132 games this season for the Yanks, who are currently 4 1/2 games back in the American League Wild Card hunt.

***********************

UPDATE, 9:21 PM ET: Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that the X-rays turned up negative.

    The hits just keep on coming.

    “..there is no X-ray machine at the Blue Jays’ Rogers Centre.”

    So much for the Canadian health care model.

      So why do Canadians live longer than Americans?

      • bigharold - Aug 27, 2013 at 9:54 PM

        They don’t, .. they merely look alive until they defrost.

        Weak! Very weak!

        Actually it is partly due to our quaint habit of fornicating with beavers.

        In that case , I ‘ll refer the matter to PETA. Hope you’re not related to a Vick..Please do not bother the Elks during rutting season with advances. OUCH !

        Holder just announced that the feds will not interfere with Washington States plan to deregulate pot as a criminal offense. That huge sucking sound you hear is the $10 billion BC Bud business collapsing. Harper will have a solution. Close Parliament for another 4 months .

      my neighbor’s aunt makes $85 an hour on the internet. She has been laid off for five months but last month her payment was $21629 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read more on this web site… http://clck.ru/8oVmF

      • proudlycanadian - Aug 28, 2013 at 8:09 AM

        She is paid $85 an hour for getting laid on the internet and has earned only $21,629. That is poverty.

    Now that this game is out of reach someone from the jays has to go down, if they don’t bean one of their players Girardi should be canned.

    • Kevin S. - Aug 27, 2013 at 9:31 PM

      Yeah, Girardi should clearly start a beanball war in retaliation for non-intentional pitches.

      • bigharold - Aug 27, 2013 at 10:00 PM

        More to the point why get into it with a team that is going nowhere and has nothing to lose?

        It’s not like if their best pitcher gets suspended for a couple of starts they are going to lose their opportunity to climb out of dead last.

      • dirtyharry1971 - Aug 27, 2013 at 10:08 PM

        do I need to remind you how many hitters they have hit on the Yanks this year? Helpless hit granderson in ST, if this guy cant control his pitches then his teammate need to pay for that until he learns to control them

      • Kevin S. - Aug 27, 2013 at 10:10 PM

        That’s fucking retarded, even by your standards.

      • indaburg - Aug 27, 2013 at 10:41 PM

        dirtyharry has standards? That’s news to me.

  3. randygnyc - Aug 27, 2013 at 9:37 PM

    First Granderson, now cano. Yankees have to intentionally hurt someone this series.

    • proudlycanadian - Aug 27, 2013 at 9:59 PM

      Back from your summer home Randy? Cano stuck his hand in the path of the ball. There was no reason for him to initially decide to swing at the pitch. He did decide to check his swing, but lazily did not get his hand out of the way. Poor pitch recognition on his part. He was lucky as the X-Rays were negative.

      Now I remember why I never miss you.

  4. buffalo65 - Aug 27, 2013 at 9:38 PM

    I vote Pillar. That should even things up.

  5. buffalo65 - Aug 27, 2013 at 9:41 PM

    Yanks are so old they’d be afraid to fight anyways.

  6. buffalo65 - Aug 27, 2013 at 9:42 PM

    Girardi can’t get canned, his dream job in Toronto is taken.

    • bigharold - Aug 27, 2013 at 9:56 PM

      Toronto is nobody’s dream job, .. precept maybe PC.

    • dirtyharry1971 - Aug 28, 2013 at 12:13 AM

      Oh hey Buffalo Bob I forgot to tell you something, you being a muts fan and all, hey im really sorry about Harvey!! (Giggles)

    • badintent - Aug 30, 2013 at 2:21 AM

      and your dream job is greeting at Wal Mart ? Again.Joe was in the front row at the US OPEN tonight, box seat tickets go for $20K for 2 weeks. Didn’t see you there.

  7. buffalo65 - Aug 27, 2013 at 9:43 PM

    Cano knew he wasn’t hurt but the dodgers advised him to leave the game anyways.

  8. banger60 - Aug 27, 2013 at 9:56 PM

    hit somebody back for once, just once, that’s all I ask, is that to much to ask for?

    • Reflex - Aug 27, 2013 at 11:25 PM

      Yes. Its pointless. The hit was unintentional. Getting a Yankee suspended when they are finally putting on a run at the wild card would be idiotic.

  9. buffalo65 - Aug 27, 2013 at 10:03 PM

    Clearly wasn’t intentional. Happ just isn’t that good.

  10. buffalo65 - Aug 27, 2013 at 10:06 PM

    Yanks are going nowhere and Cano is going to LA. What’s to get upset about?

    • badintent - Aug 28, 2013 at 2:21 AM

      Yanks will grab last wild card.Cano will stay in NY. Jay-z ‘s recording studio and club is in NY. Nothing is in LA except for smog,Trafficggadon, earthquakes, and more forest fires. And the Clippers being the best team in Staples.

  11. buffalo65 - Aug 27, 2013 at 10:21 PM

    Well it ain’t smart that’s for sure, but its as close to actual baseball talk that Larry has got in a while.

    • dirtyharry1971 - Aug 28, 2013 at 12:15 AM

      We can talk about Harvey all night if you want Buffalo BOB!! Hey how do you think he will be next year? Oh that’s right, he isn’t playing, HAHAHAHAHHAA, nite bob!

  12. uyf1950 - Aug 28, 2013 at 5:44 AM

    As the Yankees manage to persevere this season I’m reminded of a saying by the Philosopher Friedrich Nietzche. He said” “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

    In my opinion the Yankees will emerge from this season and all these injuries much, much stronger next year and in the years to come.

  13. buffalo65 - Aug 28, 2013 at 6:28 AM

    Well if the yanks want to give him 220 million I guess they might get him. I figured they had enough ridiculously bad contracts but maybe not.

    • uyf1950 - Aug 28, 2013 at 6:48 AM

      My friend not sure who you are speaking to but it really doesn’t matter the who but what you said. I don’t understand why fans especially non Yankees fans concern themselves so much with the Yankees payroll or their contract with specific players. It’s not like you guys are paying them.

      Just one more thing. In spite of those “ridiculous bad contracts” as you call them. All the Yankees do is win year in and year out. Even in this year with all their injuries, with all the other stuff going on around the team the Yankees continue to be a force in the league and in the division. They may or may not make the postseason but at least they aren’t quitting like so many teams this year and in past years.

  14. buffalo65 - Aug 28, 2013 at 6:31 AM

    Have I got under your skin dirt boy? Good. I have been reading your nonsense for a while. Kick team when they are down. No guts to write when they are going good and never anything of substance to add to any conversation…Bomb Canada…what a douche. Lol
