Exiting the game in the top of the first inning was not the way Yankees second baseman, Robinson Cano envision his evening would go. But after Cano was struck by a Matt Harvey fastball on the right knee, you can understand why. The Mets pitcher's fastball registered at a whopping 97mph. Take a look:

Cano took his base but was immediately pulled out of the game and replaced by Dustin Pedroia. As Cano walked across the field, he passed by Matt Harvey and winked at him as a sign of everything is alright. The injuries plague Yankees can ill-afford to lose their another man, who's in fact their best player. At this very moment reports are good for Cano as X-rays are negative.
