Robinson Cano and Damaso Marte have returned from the World Baseball Classic, and they aren't feeling 100 percent.
From George King:
Cano has tightness in the back of his right shoulder, an injury that apparently occurred before he joined the Dominican Republic's WBC team.If Cano was feeling tightness before he left for the WBC, he shouldn't have gone at all. Marte shouldn't have pitched if he hurt himself before the game also. This is just stupid.
"It started before I left for there," Cano said. "It was a little tight and it never went away."
Cano, the Bombers New York Yankees starting second baseman, was checked out earlier by the Dominican's physician who said, "It's just tight."
Marte, who also played on the Dominican team, is feeling tightness in his left pectorial muscle, which is between his (throwing) shoulder and chest.
The injury occurred while Marte was lifting weights Tuesday afternoon, but he proceeded to pitch one inning for the Dominican team against the Netherlands that night anyway.
"I don't think it's that serious - three to four days," Marte said.
