Alex Rodriguez is in the Yankees’ starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Rays, but here’s something to keep an eye on going forward …
George A. King III of the New York Post heard from a club official that A-Rod underwent an MRI on Tuesday in Tampa after complaining of discomfort in his left knee and was diagnosed with a bone bruise. It’s obviously not a significant issue right now, but there may be some days off ahead for the veteran designated hitter.
New York entered play Tuesday with a three-game cushion on the first American League Wild Card spot.
Rodriguez is batting .257/.359/.501 with 31 home runs and 82 RBI in 132 games.
