Just a few injury updates:
- Mark Feinsand reports that A-Rod has tendinitis of the hip flexor. Girardi thinks it’s good news that it’s not a muscular issue. A-Rod is day-to-day. He could pinch hit tonight, but Girardi would like to avoid that. The Yanks have an off-day on Monday as well, so they could use Sunday to give him two days off in a row, including three off in four days.
- Via Chad Jennings, Tony Pena led Jorge Posada in some more catching drills today. I can see him back behind the plate Tuesday against Philly, but that’s just a guess.
- Also from Jennings, Gardner will take BP of some sort today. He is not in tonight’s lineup.
