The New York Yankees have placed Alex Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring strain suffered on Tuesday night.
After stretching it for a bit in shallow right field, he jogged slowly off the field. He was then removed from the contest for pinch-hitter Dustin Ackley.
A-Rod was sent for an MRI and it revealed that he has suffered a hamstring strain. This injury came a week following Rodriguez’s oblique issue that caused him to miss two days.
Rodriguez was batting .194 on the season but in the past seven games owned a .304/.333/.826 slash line with three home runs and seven RBI.
To fill the lost roster spot, the Yankees recalled 24-year old James Pazos from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Pazos did not allow a single earned run in 11 relief appearances in the Bronx a year ago.
