Robinson Cano was forced to leave Sunday's spring training game against the Baltimore Orioles after he was drilled on his left wrist by a pitch in the top of the sixth inning. He was immediately attended to by trainer Steve Donhue and removed from the field. Luckily, x-rays after the game came back negative.

It was certainly a scary moment, however. Cano has been the epitome of durability, playing in at least 159 game in each of his last five seasons. It seems he will okay moving forward, according to manager Joe Girardi.
"He's fine," Girardi said after the Yankees' 6-3 loss. "There are no broken bones. It's just a contusion. He's sore."
