CLEVELAND (AP) -Alex Rodriguez is A-OK.
Rodriguez returned to the New York Yankees starting lineup on Friday night against the Cleveland Indians after missing three games with a strained right quadriceps.
As manager Joe Girardi and members of the club's medical and training staffs looked on, Rodriguez tested his leg in the outfield about three hours before the first pitch. After Rodriguez did some running and played catch for a few minutes, Girardi looked satisfied as he walked away.
``He's playing third base,'' Girardi said as he headed to the clubhouse.
Rodriguez hurt his leg while running out a fielder's choice on Sunday in Baltimore. Because of the injury, he was able to travel home to Miami to be there for the birth of his daughter. He received treatment on his leg while in Florida and rejoined the Yankees on Thursday in Chicago.
The AL's reigning MVP is batting .308 with four homers and 10 RBIs in 20 games.
Also, the Yankees said reliever Brian Bruney has been advised to have surgery on his right foot after tearing a ligament while covering first base in Chicago on Thursday.
