Royals outfielder Jorge Soler has fractured bone in left foot, will undergo CT scan

The Royals don’t yet know the extent of the injury but believe it is unrelated to what happened last week in Oakland. A CT scan on Saturday will determine the Royals’ next move.

But this fact remains: Soler, in his first full season playing at the major-league level with the Royals after being acquired from the Cubs in a December 2016 trade of reliever Wade Davis, used crutches to cross the carpet of the clubhouse here after the game. He gingerly made his way in and out of the showers, careful not to place much weight on his left foot.

Bad day for Mariners as they lose Robinson Cano, series finale in Detroit

All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano was struck on the hand by an 88-mph fastball from Tigers starter Blaine Hardy in his second at-bat. The ball rode up and in on Cano, who couldn’t get out of the way. It made a sickening sound as it struck the back of Cano’s hand flush against the bat, fracturing the fifth metacarpal below his pinky finger.

“It was a rough day,” manager Scott Servais said. “It’s a freak accident. I don’t know how long he’s going to be out or where we’re headed, but it certainly hurts.

Cano will see a specialist on Tuesday morning.


Wainwright likely headed back to DL after difficult start, loss to San Diego

From the beginning, it was clear that Wainwright did not have his best feel for pitches or the velocity expected.

After the game he said he lacked “snap.”

His fastball hovered below 90 mph, and there were times he had a cutter at 84 mph or 82 mph. His changeup, which usually would be in that range, slipped into the 70s mph. He was able to get outs with his curveball and find a way through two scoreless innings. In the third, a single with the bases loaded produced the Padres’ first run and the end of Wainwright’s start.

“I didn’t have much,” Wainwright said. He added that another turn to the DL and another look at the elbow would give him a chance to determine what’s next and that he still intends “to be a force” at some point this season.
