TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has a sore right shoulder and is scheduled to be the designated hitter in Friday's game against Houston.
Rodriguez said he felt discomfort Thursday and the shoulder bothers him only when he throws. He took part in all drills Friday except the 10-minute throwing session. At that time, he took extra grounders at third.
The three-time AL MVP had a heat pack on the shoulder before going through pregame drills.
