Alex Rodriguez went back to New York for an MRI on his sore left thumb. Joe Girardi said the MRI came back clean and Rodriguez will rejoin the Yankees in Boston. It’s uncertain, though, when he’ll be able to play.
“Just depends on how the thumb responds to the treatment,” Girardi said.
Derek Jeter is available in an emergency, and Girardi said he’s been moving around much more easily than expected. Girardi is hoping to have Jeter in the lineup tomorrow.
Jeter seems more likely to play tomorrow than Rodriguez.
