Update: A-Rod leaves game after hit-by-pitchBy
3:29pm: Alex Rodriguez left this afternoon’s game after taking a fastball to the ribcage. Joe Girardi and trainer Steve Donohue checked him out before he left the game. It was the seventh inning and the regulars were being replaced after their final at-bats, so chances are Alex would have exited anyway. It sure sounded like it hurt though. We’ll update with more info as it comes in.
