CHICAGO (AP) -Injured Alex Rodriguez rejoined the New York Yankees, but was not in the starting lineup for Thursday night's game against the Chicago White Sox.
The All-Star third baseman has not played since leaving Sunday's game in Baltimore because of a strained right quadriceps. He got treatment in New York on Monday, then went to Miami to join his wife for the birth of the couple's second daughter.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday that he hoped Rodriguez would be OK to play this weekend at Cleveland.
Morgan Ensberg has started in place of Rodriguez, who is batting .308 with four homers and 10 RBIs.
