 TORONTO (AP) - Robinson Cano is out of the New York Yankees' lineup a day after being hit by a pitch in the left hand.
The star second baseman didn't start Wednesday night at Toronto.
Cano was struck by a pitch from J.A. Happ in the first inning. Manager Joe Girardi said Cano was still dealing with pain and swelling. Girardi said he hoped to have Cano in the lineup Friday night against Baltimore.
The Yankees also were minus infielder Eduardo Nunez. He was scratched with a sore right knee.
