Alex Rodriguez left Camden Yards with his leg wrapped with a heat pad. It appears he will be out at least a few days.
â€œItâ€™s a little sore, a little tight,â€ he said. â€œI have some concern about it. Anytime you have any type of feeling like that you have some concern.”
â€œMaybe,â€ Rodriguez said when asked whether he could miss a few games. â€œWeâ€™ll see how I wake up in the morning.”
Joe Girardi claimed A-Rod wasn’t getting an MRI. But then the Yankees were oddly evasive about where their best player would be spending the off day.
In Miami with his about-to-deliver wife? “No,” said Rodriguez.
In Chicago with the team? “I’m not going there,” he said.
So it’s a mystery. Given who he is and what he means to the team, you would expect the Yankees to get an MRI just to make sure they know what they’re dealing with. But who knows?
