A-Rod leaves game with stiff groin

Game 60: Look Out!
Betances returns to beat Furbush

Update (10:09pm): A-Rod has some stiffness in his groin (giggidy) and is day-to-day. He’ll see a doctor tomorrow for a better diagnosis. It’s the same groin that gave him trouble in Toronto.

7:35pm: Alex Rodriguez left today’s game for an unknown reason after the bottom of the first inning. About the only indication of injury we have came on a groundball single through the 5.5 hole, when A-Rod took no more than a step to his left to try and make a play on the ball. He deal with a sore groin last weekend. Hopefully this is nothing serious, because no A-Rod is no good.

Ramiro Pena will play third and bat cleanup (!!!) the rest of the game. We’ll update this post if/when we find out more.

    Oh God….and now we all hold our breath.

      I really hope A-Rod is OK. I was at the game and at the top of the second when he did not come up to bat, I knew something was wrong. I also saw him shaking his leg a lot in the bottom of the first. When he did not come out and Pena did, I knew right then that we had lost the game.

      Oops. DFA me. Wrong thread.

    The boys will miss his clutchiness. Hopefully he’s not shelved for very long.

    I’m not sure what’s scarier Pena batting clean-up or an A-Rod injury.

  • BadaBling

    Lets go Pena, its your time to shine! Show us why the Yanks DFA’ed Cody Ransom last year! He’s gonna be the next A-rod, look out! I predict 2 extra base hits from Pena today!

    What’s a 5.5 hole? Never heard that term before.

    • http://none Joe

      It means between shortstop and third base (3rd base=5 and shortstop=6)

      • forensicnucchem

        I bet you can guess what the 3.5 hole is now.

  • Bob Stone

    Thanks you. I presumed as much. Just never heard it called that before. Is it a common term among knowledgeable baseball fans? If so, I am just surprised that I never heard it before in my 55 years of baseball viewing.

    “the same groin”….too funny.

    • Tom Zig

      A-Rod has 4 of them

  • Tom Zig

    Bring back Kate Hudson!

  • pat

    I pulled my groin once.

    Felt great. I’ve done it once or twice a day since then.

      Quite the master debater

      • Brian in NH

        but is he a cunning linguist?

  • Phranchise

    i enjoyed the giggidy comment

  • BigBlueAL

    Is Cody Ransom available????

  • Andrew

    Hopefully Girardi didn’t repeatedly mention rubbing it out re: this particular injury.

  • misterd

    “It’s the same groin that gave him trouble in Toronto.”

    It is HIS groin, right? He’s not being harassed by other people’s groins or anything, is he?

  • Yukon Cornelius

    I thought that Madonna was the groin that got him in trouble in Toronto.

  • forensicnucchem

    A-Rod says he felt it during batting practice and then again before first pitch, but still kept himself in the lineup to start the game.

    Not smart at all. Not only is it an irresponsible risk for someone so important to the team, but it destroys the lineup when he comes out before even getting one AB.

    Hoping this is a short term injury. Considering the offensive woes of Tex and Jorge and our total lack of any big bats off the bench a prolonged absence of Arod could spell big trouble. Russo and Pena are nice role players, but we are only carrying 13 offensive players. Two of them must be catchers besides Jorge and currently two can’t start
    (Arod and Gardner). Methinks some tinkering is in order.
