Friday's game between the Yankees and Orioles has been postponed.

A series of storms are wrecking havoc on the East Coast and have caused multiple cancellations. The Yankees and Orioles will play a split doubleheader on Saturday, with games at 12:05 ET and 7:05 ET to make up for the Friday washout. Fortunately for the Yankees, they actually won on Thursday, securing their spot in the playoffs. Otherwise this weekend would look much different.
Oct 2 - 4:09 PM

Alex Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with his 33rd homer and two walks Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Rodriguez has had his way with Boston pitching this year, batting .313 with four homers and 16 RBI in 18 games. His second half hasn't been nearly as impressive as his first, but even with his average down, he ended up with seven homers in September.
Sep 30 - 11:30 PM

Alex Rodriguez scored his 2,000th career run Thursday against the White Sox.

A-rod is just the either player to reach the milestone, and it's quite a group; he joins Rickey Henderson, Ty Cobb, Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Pete Rose and Willie Mays. The next highest active player on the list is Albert Pujols, who is 50th with 1,589 runs scored. Henderson's major league record stands at 2,295.
Sep 24 - 11:01 PM

Alex Rodriguez is once again not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday night's contest against the Mets.

Rodriguez sat every game of the weekend series as the Yankees were playing in a National League park without the designated hitter. He will once again be available off of the bench as a pinch hitter.
Sep 20 - 5:00 PM

Alex Rodriguez remains out of the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

It comes as no major surprise, as the Yankees are without the benefit of a designated hitter while playing the Mets in New York. He'll be available off the bench as a pinch hitter.
Sep 19 - 10:06 AM

Alex Rodriguez is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

A-Rod figures to be limited to pinch-hitting duty all weekend with the designated hitter spot unavailable at Citi Field versus the Mets. Rodriguez has also been dealing with a bone bruise in his left knee, so some rest over the weekend might not be the worst thing.
Sep 18 - 3:48 PM

Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

Rodriguez gave the Yankees an early 1-0 lead, blasting a solo home run to right-center off of Jake Odorizzi in the first inning. He would walk and score on Greg Bird's homer in the fourth. The veteran DH is hitting .257/.360/.506 with 32 home runs and 83 RBI with the end of the season drawing near.
Sep 15 - 10:31 PM

Alex Rodriguez had an MRI Tuesday that revealed a bone bruise in his left knee.

He suffered it during a head-first slide on Sunday. A-Rod is in Tuesday's lineup, so it evidently must not be something the Yankees are overly concerned about at the moment. However, it's certainly something to keep an eye on. Rodriguez is hitting .261/.306/.630 with five homers in 12 games this month.
Sep 15 - 6:29 PM

Alex Rodriguez clubbed a two-run homer in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

Rodriguez is now up to 31 home runs on the year, his most since 2008. The opposite-field blast traveled an estimated 341 feet, so it just managed to sneak over the wall. Still, it counts the same as any other home run in the box score. A-Rod has gone deep five times in his last eight games.
Sep 12 - 5:54 PM

Alex Rodriguez hit his 30th home run of the season on Tuesday, but the Yankees fell to the Orioles.

Rodriguez's sixth-inning solo shot off of Kevin Gausman tied the game at 1-1, but it proved to be the Yankees' only offense on the evening. The veteran notched his 15th career 30-homer season, becoming only the second player -- the other being Hank Aaron -- to have 15 30-homer seasons. Rodriguez has 684 in his 21-year career. This season, he has knocked in 78 runs while batting .258/.361/.501.
Sep 8 - 10:25 PM

Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Friday's 5-2 win over the Rays.

Rodriguez's homer opened the scoring for the game in the second inning. It was his 27th home run of the season. He logged a nine-homer July, but hit just two bombs last month. It's been a general cool-down for the 40-year-old as the days have worn on. He entered Friday's game having hit .210/.317/.413 in 40 games since the All-Star Break.
Sep 4 - 10:13 PM

Alex Rodriguez is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

He's not going to be in there on Saturday and Sunday, either, with the Yankees not having the designated hitter spot available in Atlanta. A-Rod will serve as a pinch-hitter this weekend before returning to action Monday in Boston.
Aug 28 - 5:02 PM

Alex Rodriguez is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

It's his second straight day on the bench. There's no word of A-Rod being injured, so it appears the Yanks are just giving his slumping bat some time off. Rodriguez is hitting just .159/.275/.290 in August, although he's homered twice in his last four games. Brian McCann is in the designated hitter spot Sunday, with John Ryan Murphy handling the catching.
Aug 23 - 10:41 AM

Alex Rodriguez is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Indians.

It's nothing more than a day of rest for the 40-year-old slugger. Brian McCann is starting as the designated hitter while J.R. Murphy gets the call behind the dish against Danny Salazar and the Tribe.
