Update (3:18pm): The Yankees say that Alex left the game with “lower back and oblique stiffness,” and there are no tests planned at this time. Fingers crossed.
Original Post (2:55pm): Alex Rodriguez was lifted from today’s game in the seventh inning for an unknown reason. Eric Chavez replaced him defensively. It’s been raining pretty much all game, but there was nothing obvious that made it look like he got hurt. We’ll update this post with more info once we find out why he was lifted, but in the meantime I recommend full blown panic. Okay, not really.
