 NEW YORK (AP) -Alex Rodriguez wasn't in the starting lineup because of a strained left hamstring Thursday when for the New York Yankees played the Minnesota Twins.
Rodriguez was scheduled to have an MRI exam. The All-Star third baseman tripped over Twins first baseman Justin Morneau's ankle Monday night while beating out a potential double play. He advanced to second before leaving the game.
``Day by day, we'll see,'' general manager Brian Cashman said.
Rodriguez played third base Tuesday and was the designated hitter for Wednesday's game. He went 0-for-4 both days and said after Wednesday's 6-2 loss to Minnesota that his left hamstring didn't feel any better or worse.
``He was a little uncomfortable yesterday,'' manager Joe Torre said. ``I don't think it's anything more than it was but probably a couple of days playing on it exposed it a little bit more. We still don't think that it's anything that's going to require anything more than maybe a day or so off.''
The Yankees had an afternoon game Thursday and open a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night, giving Rodriguez a little extra time to heal.
Miguel Cairo replaced the two-time MVP at third base against the Twins and designated hitter Hideki Matsui was in the cleanup spot.
Rodriguez, in a season-worst 0-for-19 skid, leads the majors with 28 homers and 80 RBIs. He has played in every game this season. He topped fan voting for Tuesday's All-Star game in San Francisco with 3.89 million votes, but said Wednesday he could skip the game to rest his hamstring.
