A-Rod and more Yankees pregame

Brian Heyman here at Yankee Stadium, just up from the clubhouse.

 A-Rod went through his pregame work and said, “I felt OK. No setbacks.” He went to get more treatment and said he would talk to Joe Girardi about whether he will be available off the bench tonight. The injury has been described as hip flexor tendinitis, but Rodriguez said it really is more in the groin area. While Girardi said A-Rod would be back at third tomorrow night if everything went OK with the pregame routine, Rodriguez left open the possibility of serving as a DH tomorrow. He also wouldn’t blame any injury-related reason for having just eight homers this season. “As far as my home runs, they’re just down. But the year’s not over yet. ”

With the Phillies in town, Chan Ho Park received his NL championship ring. … The Phillies have flipped their rotation for the rest of the series. Jamie Moyer moves up to tomorrow and Kyle Kendrick will go Thursday night.

Here’s is Philadelphia’s lineup:

1. Shane Victorino CF

2. Chase Utley 2B

3. Placido Polanco 3B

4. Ryan Howard 1B

5. Jayson Werth RF

6. Raul Ibanez LF

7. Ben Francisco DH

8. Juan Castro SS 

9. Carlos Ruiz C
