When he reached toward that game-winning single in the eighth inning, Robinson Cano felt his left hip grab. He iced it after the game and will get additional medical treatment this evening. Both Joe Girardi and Cano seem to think it’s probably a minor injury, but Cano acknowledged that he’s a little bit worried about whether he’ll be able to play tomorrow.
“Well, yeah,” he said. “It’s just tight a little bit, and it (is an injury) to one part of your body you most use for the game. Let’s see what the trainer is going to say and see how it feels tomorrow.”
Cano said he believes he would have kept that ball in the infield, but as he reached down to field it, his left foot came up awkwardly and he felt his left hip grab. He stayed in the game and was planning to remain in if the game went beyond the ninth. Cano said he never felt anything pop, and described the injury only as tightness.
“Right when I tried to bend, my left foot just came straight up and I felt my hip,” he said. “It will be hopefully just nothing bad.”
