Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano left Wednesday night’s loss to the Royals after getting hit by a pitch in the batting helmet. Cano went for a CT scan and is considered day-to-day.
The Royals are off to a solid start to the season, but that’s due mostly to their major league-high 15 home victories. Improving their major league-worst road record might prove difficult in a matchup with the Yankees.
Zack Greinke pitched seven sharp innings and the Kansas City Royals beat Tampa Bay 3-2, leaving the Rays and New York Yankees tied for the AL East lead.
