Alex Rodriguez didn’t hear a pop in his hamstring during yesterday’s 4-1 loss against the Baltimore Orioles.
But he did feel soreness and wasn’t sure if he was able to avoid the disabled list this time.
Rodriguez was able to avoid a trip to the DL when he tweaked his oblique during the series against the Tampa Bay Rays, and returned to the Yankees lineup a few days later for the Texas Rangers series. But now Rodriguez will undergo a MRI to determine how bad the hamstring strain is. Rodriguez hoped for the best, and the Yankees are also hoping for the best. Rodriguez has had the strongest bat in the lineup within the last week, and for a team that is struggling to piece together a win, losing Rodriguez provides a big blow.
But, if the Yankees must lose Rodriguez for 15 days or more…how does Nick Swisher as the Yankees replacement DH sound?
