Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez felt tightness in his left quad and was subsequently moved from third to DH in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders lineup for today’s game, reports ESPN’s Ian Begley. Begley says there’s a chance A-Rod aggravated the injury yesterday:
It is possible that Rodriguez hurt his quad while running the bases on Friday night.
Rodriguez ran hard in his last at-bat on Friday, trying to reach second on a line drive to left. He was thrown out at second by several feet after a feet-first slide. Rodriguez, 37, did not complain of any soreness after the game.
Begley also notes that it’s unclear if this minor setback will impact his return to the Yankees as he has two days left in his 20-day rehab stint.
