The Yankees termed it a “strained hamstring” which is significant. Usually teams try and go with euphemisms like “pull” or “discomfort.” It’s also in the upper part of the hamstring, where the muscles are thickest. That’s usually more serious than the lower part of the hamstring.
“It could have been a lot worse, I crashed into him pretty hard,” Rodriguez said.
Alex left the clubhouse with his leg wrapped and will be examined by a doctor tomorrow. I would think that would include an MRI. He said he could not have scored from second on a base hit, which is why he asked out of the game.
We won’t know more until tomorrow but the Yankees will be lucky if A-Rod doesn’t go on the disabled list.
