I don’t know when exactly Joel Sherman found out that Alex Rodriguez’s knee is what kept him out of the lineup today, but you had to suspect something was wrong since it’s his first off day of the year.
The good news:
The injury is not considered serious and the Yanks believed Rodriguez would be back in the lineup Monday night against the Orioles.
The validity of the report is confirmed by Rodriguez getting pinch-run for in yesterday’s game.
Meanwhile, the Bronx Bombers are currently bombing the White Sox, 7-0. I’ll have the full recap up after the game as usual.
