who is currently sidelined with hip flexor tendinitis, will not return
to the starting lineup until at least Tuesday, according to Ed Price of

time, but said that the team does not believe he will need a stint on
the disabled list.

tendinitis,” which is different than the hip problem that resulting in Rordriguez’s hip problems last year.
