Alex Rodriguez has tendonitis in his right hip flexor.

Although it’s in the hip, it’s in a very different spot from the area where Rodriguez had hip surgery last year.

“This is about as good of news as we could have gotten,” Joe Girardi said.

Girardi said the trainers have told him that pinch hitting isn’t out of the question for Rodriguez, but Girardi would rather not use Rodriguez if he can avoid it.

UPDATE, 4:55 p.m.: Here’s the audio of Girardi making the announcement about Rodriguez’s MRI results. He gathered the media in the clubhouse roughly 15 minutes after his regular pregame press conference to give everyone the news.
