NEW YORK (AP) -Alex Rodriguez hasn't decided whether he will play in Tuesday's All-Star game or use the three-day break to rest his strained hamstring.
The Yankees slugger, who leads the major leagues with 28 homers and 80 RBIs, topped fan voting for the game in San Francisco with 3.89 million votes. He hurt his left hamstring Monday night when he tripped over Twins first baseman Justin Morneau's ankle while beating out a potential double play.
``I told the guys I'll let them know Saturday ... but if I feel like this, probably not,'' Rodriguez said Wednesday. The third baseman added he will still go to the All-Star game even if he decides not to play.
Rodriguez remained in the game after injuring his hamstring and advanced to second, then came out. He went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Tuesday night but looked comfortable in the field, starting an important double play with a fine pickup on the backhand side.
``I feel OK,'' said Rodriguez, who was in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins at designated hitter.
Rodriguez has played in every game this season and hasn't been on the disabled list since July 2000 with Seattle, when he had a right knee strain.
