New York Yankees Alex Rodriguez watches from the dugout as the Yankees take batting practice in Minneapolis

After missing the past two games with a sprained thumb Alex Rodriguez is back in the Yankees’ lineup today, playing third base and batting cleanup against the A’s.

Rodriguez missed 38 games following knee surgery and lasted just one game before suffering the thumb injury, going 0-for-5 against the Twins in his return Sunday.

He hasn’t played back-to-back games since June 6 and 7 but the Yankees haven’t missed a beat without Rodriguez, going 44-25 during that time while Eduardo Nunez and Eric Chavez split starts at third base.

    If they lose today, it will be all his fault…

      Guess what- Leave ARod alone. He’s been on base 4 out of 5 already.
