Even if Seattle had won, this would have been a tough day for the Mariners.
John Hicks homered for Detroit (16-22).
Cano will visit a hand specialist Tuesday in Philadelphia and expects to require surgery to fix the broken bone at the base of his right pinkie finger, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The Detroit Tigers and the Seattle Mariners split a doubleheader on Saturday. The Mariners (22-17) have looked like contenders for their first postseason spot since 2001, but losing Cano for an extended period would obviously hurt. The Mariners said he has a fractured fifth metacarpal.
It has been a nice start to the year for the Mariners as they will enter the DH on Saturday at 21-15 on the year and just one game out of first in the American League West. "Everyone knows what he means to this team, and he's down right now, but we have other guys who can step up".
JaCoby Jones began the inning with an infield single against Mariners reliever Juan Nicasio and Niko Goodrum followed with a single to right after an eight-pitch at-bat.
X-rays came back negative, and Castellanos is day-to-day.
Goodrum, Iglesias and Dixon Machado - the last three hitters in Detroit's batting order - went 6 for 10. He pitched 1.0 inning that night, striking out 2.
Detroit took two of three in the series, and the three games were played in just under 24 hours. This AL matchup starts at 4:10 p.m. ET and fans can watch it on RTNW and FSDT. I like Seattle to beat him up, or at least beat up the bullpen when Hardy gets the early hook. "I went out there trying to go as deep as I possibly can". That gave Detroit a 2-1 lead.
Greiner opened the scoring with an RBI single in the fourth. But Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias made a brilliant play on Ryon Healy's grounder up the middle, starting a 6-4-3 double play to end the inning and preserve a 2-2 tie. On Saturday, Castellanos had two hits. Detroit also recalled left-hander Ryan Carpenter from Toledo to be the 26th man for the second game of the doubleheader.
James Paxton is getting the start for the Mariners today.
