Cano Leaves All-Star Game After Being Hit By Pitch

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was hit in the right leg by a Matt Harvey fastball in the first inning of the All-Star Game Tuesday, leading Cano to leave the game.

Cano had X-Rays which came back negative and the 30-year-old is hopeful he can play when the Yankees take on the Red Sox Friday.

"It just felt a little tight and I didn't want to aggravate it," Cano said of why he left the game. "It's nothing bad."

Cano stayed on base for one batter before Dustin Pedroia replaced him as a pinch runner.

Cano is hitting .302, with 21 homers and 65 RBIs this season.
