Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup because "he's not feeling well," The News Tribune's Bob Dutton reports.

Cano is an extremely durable player, having played in all 52 games this season and 1,172 of 1,186 contests since the start of the 2007 campaign.

Nick Franklin, who was originally slated to be the designated hitter, will move to second base. Stefen Romero will now assume the DH duties.
