New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano left Tuesday night’s All-Star Game in the top of the first inning after being hit by a 96 mile per hour fastball around the right knee from All-Star Starter, New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey.

He was attended to by American League manager Jim Leyland and trainers and X-rays taken of the knee were negative.

At the end of the next at-bat, Cano took himself out. He was replaced by Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who came on a pitch runner.
