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.
Nunez fell after catching his cleat in a seam on the artificial turf Tuesday. He left an inning later.
Mark Reynolds was set to make his first major league start at second base. He finished up there Tuesday night after Cano and Nunez were hurt.
