Cano leaves game in 3rd inning after HBP on right hand
Rick Osentoski / USA TODAY Sports

Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano left Sunday's game against the Detroit Tigers in the top of the third inning after being struck on the right hand by an 88 mph pitch from Blaine Hardy.

He was replaced by infielder Andrew Romine.

He was initially expected to get a day off, but manager Scott Servais decided to play Cano against the third-place Tigers.

The veteran has been remarkably durable throughout his 14-year career split between the New York Yankees and Mariners. In his first nine seasons in the Bronx, Cano averaged 153 games a season, and since signing his 10-year, $240-million contract with the Mariners in 2013, he's appeared on the disabled list only once (he missed seven days last year with a quad strain).

Cano entered the game hitting .287/.385/.441 (.827 OPS) with 1.3 WAR and 128 wRC+.
