Robinson Cano felt his left hip grab at him during the decisive play in Monday’s game, leaving the second baseman questionable for Tuesday’s game against the Rays.With the way this team is pissing away the division another injury might just be the straw that broke the camels back. But like I say in all these all too frequent injury updates, let's hope it's nothing serious.
Cano said his hip “felt a little tight” as he tried to make a play on Chris Gimenez’s grounder through the hole, impeding his ability to bend over for the ball. He was seen wearing a big ice pack on his hip after the game, as he spent an extended amount of time in the trainer’s room.
“Right when I tried to bend, my left foot just came straight up and I felt my hip,” Cano said. “It’s tight right now. Hopefully nothing bad or anything.”
Cano said he was a little worried about the injury, though he was hopeful that he would be back in the lineup Tuesday.
“It was grabbing; I didn’t hear anything pop, thank God,” Cano said. “We’ll see what happens tomorrow.”
