Cano is a member of the MLB team that is currently in Tokyo in the Japan All-Star Series.

Cano was hit in the right foot by the second pitch of his seventh-inning at bat vs. Samurai Japan pitcher Yuki Nishi.

Cano left the game, and x-rays revealed a non-displaced fracture of his right small toe. The injury will not require a cast or treatment, just rest. Healing time is expected to be 3-4 weeks. Mariners Senior Director of Athletic Training Rick Griffin spoke with Cano, who reported no pain. Cano should be able to resume baseball activities in mid-December.

Cano will not participate in the remainder of the Japan All-Star Series.
