Yankees placed DH Alex Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

A-Rod suffered the injury in the fifth inning Tuesday while running to first base. The veteran slugger is probably going to need more than the typical 15 days off. Dustin Ackley replaced him at designated hitter on Tuesday night, but look for the Yankees to work in several different names through that DH spot.

Alex Rodriguez will undergo an MRI on his right hamstring.

A-Rod pulled up lame while running to first base in the fifth inning Tuesday and manager Joe Girardi acknowledged after the game that the situation is "definitely worrisome."

Alex Rodriguez was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Orioles with an apparent leg injury.

A-Rod appeared to tweak something in his right leg while running to first base in the top of the fifth inning and Dustin Ackley entered to hit for him in the top of the eighth. There should be an update after the game. This could be a big blow for the already-struggling Yanks.

May 1 - 11:38 PM

Alex Rodriguez socked a solo homer Friday against the Red Sox.

He’s up to four home runs on the season and 691 for his career. Rodriguez has five hits (including two doubles and two home runs) over his last three games, so at least he’s showing some signs of life. The 40-year-old is batting .194/.286/.419 overall.
Apr 29 - 10:12 PM

Alex Rodriguez finished 3-for-3 with a walk and a homer in Wednesday night's loss to the Rangers.

The veteran designated hitter raised his season slash line from .145/.242/.273 to .190/.288/.379 in one busy night.
