      Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez remains out of lineup Saturday

      Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez is again out of the lineup as the Yankees play an interleague game against the Mets on Saturday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. Rodriguez was out of the lineup Friday too, so this could be a matter of Rodriguez's previously bruised left knee acting up. A simpler explanation is that Rodriguez hasn't played in the field since April, so he might just be a strict DH now.

      No DH position means no Alex Rodriguez for Yankees on Friday

      Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez is not in the lineup Friday against the Mets. With the Yankees headed to a National League park, Rodriguez will likely be reduced to serving in a pinch-hitting role over the weekend. The 40-year-old was diagnosed with a bruised left knee earlier in the week, so the time off could help keep him fresh for the stretch run.

      Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez goes yard in loss to Rays

      Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez was apparently unaffected by a bruised left knee that had been diagnosed before the game Tuesday against Tampa Bay. He went 1-for-3 with a home run in the loss. With the Yankees headed to their crosstown-rival Mets over the weekend, Rodriguez should get some time off to rest the knee, as it's unlikely he'll play in the field with the lack of the DH spot.

      Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez dealing with knee bruise

      Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez was diagnosed with a bruised left knee, but remains in Tuesday's lineup hitting third, the New York Post's George King reports. Since Rodriguez is the DH, a knee bruise is not as problematic as if he played the field, but it's worth noting he is a little banged up right now.
