SEATTLE - Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is expected to miss 3-4 weeks after breaking a toe during the Major League Baseball All-Stars tour of Japan.

Seattle said Saturday that Cano will not need a cast and the injury will heal with rest. He will likely be able to resume baseball activities in mid-December.

Cano was hit by a pitch on the right foot in the seventh inning of a 4-0 loss in Tokyo on Saturday in which the MLB players were no-hit by Japan's Takahiro Norimoto and three relievers. X-rays revealed a fracture in his small toe.

Cano signed a $240 million, 10-year contract with the Mariners before last season.
