Joe Girardi just said he has not talked to Alex Rodriguez today. As far as he knows, Rodriguez is not back from the doctor’s office.
Rodriguez met with Dr. Ahmad, and Girardi wrote the lineup assuming he wouldn’t have Rodriguez available. Girardi said there’s a chance Rodriguez could show up feeling 100 percent with a green light from the doctor, and in that case Girardi would play him tonight, but Girardi doesn’t seem to expect that to happen.
“I think we’re all a little bit worried,” Girardi said.
