    "A little bit, yeah," Cano said. The Yankees were relieved to learn that X-rays on Robinson Cano's left hand were negative, and the second baseman was back in New York's starting lineup on Saturday afternoon, batting cleanup. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Cano was hit on the top of the left hand, but he did not seem to think that Cano had suffered a fracture, as Alex Rodriguez did when he was hit by the Mariners' Felix Hernandez in July. When he was hit, Cano doubled over in pain and was examined by the Yankees’ training staff, but he never seemed in jeopardy of coming out. Cano was hit by a pitch in the sixth inning of Friday’s 11-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays, but he remained in the game and even recorded a hit in his final at-bat, alleviating a lot of concern. Despite losing DH, Girardi pulls Nunez for D TORONTO The Yankees removed Eduardo Nunez in the sixth inning of Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Blue Jays, surrendering their designated hitter and sparking concern that the backup infielder had suffered an injury.
