New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez could serve as designated hitter at some point during the American League Championship Series to rest his surgically repaired right knee.
Rodriguez had knee surgery earlier this season that limited him to 99 games this season. He was held out of Wednesday's regular season finale at Tampa Bay because he felt some soreness in the joint.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated that the slugger could be moved to DH for one of the ensuing games in Detroit. Rodriguez was at third base for Friday's series opener and remained there when the game was resumed Saturday.
If Rodriguez is moved to DH, Eric Chavez likely would play third base.
