Originally written September 16, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has been dealing with a hamstring injury that limited him to designated hitter duties over the weekend. Rodriguez suffered another injury during yesterday's weekend finale, as he exited the contest after experiencing tightness in his right calf, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. In describing the injury after the game, Rodriguez sounded concerned. The veteran is hoping he was able to exit before doing significant damage to his calf. "I've had a calf injury before, and those are tricky," Rodriguez said. "They're very dangerous. I'm hoping that I came out of the game before something really bad happened." Prior to suffering his calf injury, Rodriguez had been recovering from tightness in his left hamstring. The ailment has kept him from playing the field over the past several games, as he and the Yankees were trying to avoid blowing out the hamstring. As is usually the case when you're compensating for an injury, Rodriguez hurt another part of his body. It's another leg injury, which is all the more cause for concern. New York has tried to keep Rodriguez in their lineup in some form as they continue to push for the postseason. However, the slugger may require a few days off in order to more fully recover. Rodriguez is hoping that won't be the case, as he's hopeful that he'll be in the team's lineup Tuesday when they begin their series against the Toronto Blue Jays.
