Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano fractured the fifth metacarpal bone in his right hand when he was hit by a fastball in the third inning against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.
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.
