Cano has no issues after All-Star Game plunking

BOSTON -- There was obvious concern when Robinson Cano had to leave the All-Star Game in the top of the first inning, but the Yankees' second baseman said that he was not worried about having to miss any playing time.

Cano exited the Midsummer Classic shortly after being drilled in the right quadriceps with Matt Harvey's 96-mph fastball, but some ice and rest were enough to get Cano back in the Yankees' lineup on Friday.

"From the first day, it just felt a little tight, but no pain or anything," Cano said. "I just moved it around a little bit and it feels pretty good."

Cano was carrying a nine-game hitting streak as the Yankees resumed play in Boston. He tried to stay in Wednesday's All-Star Game at Citi Field but left after one batter, yielding to pinch-runner Dustin Pedroia.

"It started getting tighter when I was on first, and I don't want to take my chances," Cano said.
