Seattle Mariners star Robinson Cano has been listed as day-to-day after suffering a hand contusion, per Adam Lewis of MLB.com:

Bob Dutton of The News Tribune in Tacoma, Washington, reported that Cano should be healed by the weekend:

Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reported the All-Star second baseman was dealing with pain between his thumb and hand:

Although Cano struggled out of the gates a bit after signing that massive deal with the Mariners, he's since gotten back on track. His power numbers might be down (2 HR, 31 RBI, .420 SLG), but he's hitting .327, which is tied for second in the American League. Cano's also the only Mariners batter hitting over .300.

Heading into Friday night's games, Seattle sits fourth in the AL West, five-and-a-half games back of the division-leading Oakland Athletics. Cano's absence won't help the Mariners close that gap anytime soon.

He's only day-to-day, though, so his injury shouldn't be a major road block in the team's postseason push.
