|The Baseball Gods got must have gotten ahold of this picture and decided to punish him Good news, Yankees fans! Since we clearly did not have quite enough injured players yet, the Baseball Gods kindly struck down Robby Cano with a small tear in his left hamstring.

Cairo will be taking over at 2nd, but AAA Columbus infielder Nick Green was brought up to fill out the roster
