A-Rod OK; should play next week

Postby WebHamster » Fri Mar 26, 2004 3:01 am

Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was back for workouts Thursday, one day after injuring his cheekbone during a game against the Boston Red Sox.

Rodriguez was hurt when he was setting up to take a throw from leftfielder Hideki Matsui on a double by Kevin Millar. The ball hit Brian Daubach's leg while he was sliding into third and ricocheted into Rodriguez's face.

Yankees trainer Gene Monahan then tended to Rodriguez and the All-Star infielder immediately left the game.

Rodriguez, the reigning American League MVP, underwent a CT scan, which turned up negative. He has a bruised left cheekbone, an injury that isn't expected to keep A-Rod out of the two-game season-opening series against the Devil Rays next week in Japan.

The Yankees will play Tampa Bay on March 30 and 31 in Tokyo.

Rodriguez, who said he felt fine, wasn't scheduled to make a trip Thursday to Clearwater for New York's spring training game against Philadelphia.

Hm... Maybe this injury has been a part of his hitting troubles.... just a thought.
