Alex Rodriguez felt soreness in the thumb in his non-throwing hand after batting practice and has been taken out of the lineup. He injured it on Sunday backhanding a ball hit by Minnesota’s Joe Mauer.

He’ll be looked at by Dr. Chris Ahmad shortly. He hopes it’s a one-day injury.

Eric Chavez will replace him at third base.
