Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano exited Tuesday night's All-Star Game in the first inning after being hit in the right knee by a 97 mph Matt Harvey fastball. He stayed in to run the bases but left one batter later. Here's the pitch courtesy of The Score:

Cano, 30, came into the All-Star Game hitting .302/.386/.531 (150 OPS+) with 21 home runs for the Yankees this season. He has been the one constant in their lineup as Derek Jeter (ankle), Alex Rodriguez (hip), Mark Teixeira (wrist) and Curtis Granderson (hand) have spent most of the year on the DL.

Cano went to the clubhouse with the trainer. No update yet on his status.
