Update, 2:58 PM ET: Cano fractured the fifth metacarpal in his right hand, per Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times. No word yet on how long he’ll be sidelined.
Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano was pulled from Sunday’s game against the Tigers after sustaining a hand injury in the third inning. Cano worked a full count against Detroit southpaw Blaine Hardy in his second at-bat, then took an 88-MPH fastball off of his right hand near the pinky area. He was attended to by manager Scott Servais and a team trainer and walked off the field several minutes later.
A formal diagnosis has yet to be announced, though Cano will undoubtedly undergo further evaluation later today. Prior to the incident, the 35-year-old infielder went 0-for-1 with a groundout in his first and only at-bat of the afternoon. He’s batting .289/.383/.444 with 14 extra-base hits and an .827 OPS in 167 plate appearances this spring.
Andrew Romine replaced Cano as a pinch-runner and second baseman in the third inning. The Mariners are currently tied 2-2 with the Tigers in the top of the fifth.
