Cano was hit on the back of the hand near the pinky finger by an inside fastball from Tigers left-hander starter Blaine Hardy.

He was attended to by a trainer and left the game, replaced in the lineup by Andrew Romine.

It was not immediately known how much time Cano will miss.

Cano has appeared in an MLB-best 2,035 games since his major-league debut in May 2005. He went on the 10-day disabled list in May 2017 due to a strained right quad muscle.

Cano is batting .287 with four home runs and 23 RBIs this season. He hit a three-run home run Saturday in the second game of the doubleheader against the Tigers.
