Cano undergoes X-rays on plunked left hand
TORONTO -- The last thing the Yankees need to see at this crucial juncture of their schedule is Robinson Cano walking out of Rogers Centre with a heavy ice wrap on his left hand.

That was the scene after New York's 11-4 victory over the Blue Jays on Friday, as Cano was heading for a Toronto hospital to have X-rays performed after being hit by a sixth-inning pitch.

Cano stayed in the game after the plunking from Blue Jays reliever Brett Cecil and laced a run-scoring single in his final at-bat, finishing 2-for-4 with two runs scored.

The Yankees had a fluoroscope examination performed at Rogers Centre that revealed no issue, but head athletic trainer Steve Donohue said that the team would prefer to have Cano undergo X-rays to be certain.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Cano was hit on the top of the left hand, but he did not seem to think that Cano had suffered a fracture, as Alex Rodriguez did when he was hit by the Mariners' Felix Hernandez in July.

"I feel like I look at Robbie and that dude's made of steel," Nick Swisher said. "It seems like he plays all the time. Any time you're talking about hands, you get a little concerned, but after I saw him staying in the game, I felt a little better."
