At the time of the incident, it sure looked and sounded like Cano's injury was significant.
He batted.280 with 23 home runs and 97 RBIs in 2017.
After a prolonged stretch where all of their position players were healthy and contributing, the Mariners lost Robinson Cano for Sunday's game and many games to come. Cano is one of the best second basemen in the game, so no matter who Seattle uses to replace him, it figures to be a sizable downgrade.
Detroit took a 3-2 lead in the fifth on Goodrums leadoff homer. Before that? He last had to go to the DL for just over a month in 2006 with a strained left hamstring while playing for the Yankees.
The Tigers send Mike Fiers (3-2) to the mound Monday night against Clevelands Carlos Carrasco (5-1) in the opener of a three-game series in Detroit. Wade LeBlanc (0-0) of Seattle pitches opposite Jake Odorizzi (3-2).
