NEW YORK (AP) -Alex Rodriguez was in the starting lineup for the New York Yankees on Tuesday night, a day after straining his left hamstring.
Rodriguez went out on the field and spoke with manager Joe Torre before the lineup was posted for the game against the Minnesota. A-Rod was in his usual cleanup spot, playing third base.
A-Rod was hurt Monday night when he tripped over first baseman Justin Morneau's ankle while beating out a potential double play. He remained in the game and advanced to second, then came out.
Rodriguez hasn't been on the disabled list since July 2000 with Seattle, when he had a right knee strain.
The All-Star third baseman leads the major leagues with 28 homers and 80 RBIs to go along with a .322 batting average.
