Yankees disable Wang; A-Rod out of lineup
Alex Rodriguez is not in the Yankees lineup today as the club takes optional batting practice here on the field at Yankee Stadium. Joe Girardi said that “it just seemed like a good day not to have him play.” And, in a weather sense, it is a good day — about 75, sunny and perfect in New York. Nice to see we seem to have shrugged off all that Seattle weather.
Chien-Ming Wang has been placed on the 15-day disabled list and Jonathan Albaladejo is here from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to lend a hand in the bullpen.
