A-Rod's got a stiff groin

Don’t look at me that way. That’s what the team said.

Rodriguez started last night’s game against the Orioles, but was pinch hit for by Ramiro Pena.  After the game the Yankees confirmed that A-Rod has
“stiffness in his groin” and will see a doctor about it today.

A-Rod has struggled with the groin issue
for a few weeks and he tweaked it again just this past Sunday. Pena will likely start in his place over the next few days.

Rodriguez has a line of .290/.361/.482 this year. Good for most people, but certainly not up to his standards. Nagging injuries like this will do that to a guy.
