Robinson Cano's father expects his son to re-sign with the New York Yankees this offseason instead of leaving for free agency. Jose Cano held court with a group of reporters in the American League clubhouse at Citi Field prior to the All-Star Game, and he said that he expects that Cano and the Yankees will be able to come to terms on a new contract agreement. "Yeah, I'll be good for Friday," Cano said. Cano, one of the few Yankees stars who remained healthy through the first half of the season, leads the team with 21 homers and 65 RBIs. Cano seemed to be in obvious pain as the trainer looked him over, but he decided to take his base as Miguel Cabrera came to the plate. The Yankees entered the All-Star Break, trailing the Red Sox by six games in the AL East and are three back of the second wild card. He is batting .302 with 21 homers tops among American League second basemen and 65 RBIs in 95 games for New York this season.
NEW YORK (AP) Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano hobbled off the field soon after being hit on the side of the right knee by a pitch from Mets ace Matt Harvey in the first inning of the All-Star game.
Robinson Cano was disappointed to be forced out of Tuesday's All-Star Game so quickly, but the Yankees second baseman said that he was relieved when X-rays came back negative and he was diagnosed with just a bruised right quadriceps.
