Robinson Cano hoping to come off IL when initially eligible

New York Mets next baseman Robinson Cano endured a groin damage in the course of Monday’s win in excess of the Atlanta Braves.

Throughout an eventual seven-2 victory in excess of the Atlanta Braves, Robinson Cano ended up suffering a groin damage in the fourth inning though rounding third foundation. He afterwards found himself on the 10-working day wounded listing, but according to Anthony DiComo of, the veteran next baseman is hoping to return when very first eligible (Friday, Aug. 14).

DiComo moreover studies that Cano is going through entire-body strengthening workouts and will resume baseball routines possibly this coming weekend or following week.

“I by no means use the phrase disheartening,” Cano claimed in regards to the damage, for every DiComo. “It’s anything that you do not want to go by means of it. You want to be in a position to go out there and…help the team to win games. But at the exact time, thank God that it was practically nothing major, that I was intelligent that I obtained out of the match.”

Brian Dozier and Luis Guillorme respectively changed Cano in the starting lineup for Tuesday’s decline and Wednesday’s win. Both equally matchups had been against the Nationals in D.C.
