According to mlb.com:
Cano said that he had felt some discomfort before reporting to the Classic club, but did not mention it to the Yankees.
"It was a little bit tight and it never went away," Cano said. "I can throw. It just feels tight. ... I was hoping that it was something that if I stretched, it'd be all right."
Why didn't Cano say anything about this before going to the WBC? And what's the story with the Yankees? Is management too hard to talk to about this?
Then there's his WBC teammate Damaso Marte, who is also hurting for certain. Here's the story from today's Newsday:
Marte's injury is more curious. He said he was bench-pressing weights - his own idea - before the Dominicans' final game, in which he pitched.
"I don't completely understand what he was doing lifting," [Joe] Girardi said.
I don't either.
Let's hope Cano and Marte recover quickly, or this is going to be a very long season.
