Felix Hernandez looked a little wild after hitting both Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez during Tuesday night's Yankees-Mariners game at Safeco Field. Maybe the Seattle Mariners ace was just angry at losing Ichiro Suzuki in a trade with the New York Yankees Monday night— but he also plunked his former teammate as well.

Now Rodriguez will be headed to the disabled list with a "non-displaced fracture of his left wrist" reports the YES Network.

Manager Joe Girardi told YES that his third baseman will meet with doctors tomorrow but couldn't say whether surgery is necessary or give a timetable for his return. "It's non-displaced, which is good," Girardi said.

You can actually hear the Yankees third baseman scream "ow!" before Rodriguez fell to home plate writhing in pain.

It sounded like the ball hit Rodriguez's bat but the cringe-inducing crack was actually Hernandez's 88mph changeup smacking A-Rod solidly on the left wrist.


A-Rod left the game with the Yankees' trainers while King Felix headed to the Mariners dugout with a 3-1 lead right after the wild pitch in the top of the eighth inning.

Girardi doesn't believe Hernandez threw at Rodriguez on purpose and said, "He [Rodriguez] is upset. He wants to be out there."

Hernandez (9-5) also withstood a shot after being hit in the stomach by a hard line drive by Eric Chavez earlier in the game. The righthander still went 7.1 innings and allowing four hits and striking out four.

The Yankees Freddy Garcia (4-4) was good— he retired 14 batters in a row— and only allowed five hits and three runs in 7.2 innings.

The Mariners went on to beat the struggling Yankees, 4-1, and take game 2 of the three-game set.
