A-Rod has a Grade 1 quad strain; will not join Yankees in Texas

The Yankees have announced the following:

Earlier today at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, an exam and MRI performed by Yankees Team Physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad on Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez revealed a Grade 1 strain of his left quadriceps.

As a result, Rodriguez will not be joining the team for its series in Texas. He is scheduled to return to Tampa, Fla., for rest and treatment.

Since today is the last day of Rodriguez’s 20-day rehab, he is “returned from rehab” today but will not be reinstated to the Major League roster. He will remain on the D.L. but can no longer play in official minor league games seeing as the 20-day window has expired.

The Yankees may petition Major League Baseball for an additional rehab assignment for Rodriguez due to this new injury.

what an offensively challenged team the Yankees are right now. And Darvish makes them look even worse. Not 1 hit yet in 4 innings. Just standing up there whiffing away. Power shortage on this team is unbelievable. What happened to the home runs the Yankees hit in the first 20 games. These old guys got tired? And not much sign of the injured coming back soon. And who’s to say what shape they’ll be in. Already a couple have come back and got reinjured within a game or two. We might as well write off 2013. And will 2014 be any better if the salary cap is still on and with the lack of major league ready talent we have in the minors. The O’s and Rays and Red Sox keep winning and the Yankees keep falling farther and farther behind. If it wasn’t for the inconsistent play of the Jays we’d be in last place.

I hope that Braun’s suspension tonight is shades of things to come for Aroid. I’m tired of his drama, time to end his careeer in pinstripes.
