Mariners' Robinson Cano Breaks Hand After Being Hit By Pitch

Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano left Seattle's game at Detroit with a broken right hand after being hit by a pitch on Sunday.

At the time of the incident, it sure looked and sounded like Cano's injury was significant. The Mariners later announced that he was diagnosed with a fractured fifth metacarpal on his right hand.

Cano, 35, went into Sunday's game hitting.289/.383/.444 with four home runs in 38 games. After a brief conversation and some preliminary tests on the field, Cano was removed from the game and replaced by utility infielder Andrew Romine.

The Tigers lead the Mariners 3-2 in the bottom of the seventh.

In the first game, the Tigers scored three runs in the sixth inning to take a 4-1 lead, with the big blow being a 2-run home run by Jose Iglesias.

Tigers: Castellanos missed the game with an injured finger on his left hand after he was hit by a pitch Saturday night, and Candelario was out with a sore wrist. Wade LeBlanc (0-0) starts for the Mariners against Jake Odorizzi (3-2). Niko Goodrum homered and had three hits for the Tigers.
