Alex Rodriguez despite his myriad off-the-field troubles has been the best offensive threat behind Alfonso Soriano of late but the slugger tweaked his left hamstring Tuesday night when he rounded third base and scored on a Robinson Cano RBI single in the 8th inning. He appeared to grimace on the dugout bench after sliding into home and was replaced by David Adams in the bottom half.
"I just felt a little knock coming around third said A-Rod. “But I iced it and saw the doctor. Both checked out ok."
Joe Girardi said Rodriguez could DH Wednesday and the third baseman agreed. A-Rod was 2-for-4 with two doubles an RBI and a run scored. He is batting .301.
“I feel like I’m explosive. I feel like I have an opportunity to hit the ball and drive it to all fields. I felt that last at-bat was indicative of how I’m feeling especially lately” he said.
