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+.
