Robinson Cano has a bone bruise in his left hand after an awkward catch yesterday. He was expecting to play today, but he woke up with enough pain that he doesn’t expect to be available to hit even if the Yankees need him.
“I don’t want to make it worse,” he said.
The good news for Cano is that his hand is feeling better. He’s treating it with ice and won’t hit today, believing a full day of rest will leave him available to play tomorrow.
