MLB All-Star Game: Robinson Cano leaves game after hit by pitch

Mike Ehrmann

Robinson Cano was hit in the side of the knee by Matt Harvey in the first inning of the All-Star Game. He was in obvious pain and took plenty of time going to first base, but looked to be staying in the game. Miguel Cabrera then struck out in the next at-bat and Cano left the game accompanied by a trainer. He was pinch run for by Dustin Pedroia. It's hard to know just how serious it is or if it was just for precautionary measures, but it did not look good for the American League team or the Yankees.

Cano getting hit in the knee at the All-Star Game is even more "2013 Yankees" than Travis Hafner getting taken out by a pitching machine. It would be nice if the team's luck could change at some point this season, but it doesn't look good.

At this point Mariano Rivera is the Yankees' sole representative at the All-Star Game and won't likely be seen until the ninth inning. Yankees fans have another eight innings before they can root on a member of their team now. Thanks, Harvey!


I think we can all exhale now. Maybe.
