NEW YORK (AP) - The Yankees say Alex Rodriguez is expected to have an MRI on his injured left quadriceps at a New York hospital on Sunday.
Rodriguez played designated hitter on Saturday in a minor league game after feeling tightness in the thigh muscle. He has been rehabbing from surgery in January on his left hip.
On Saturday, Rodriguez told reporters after the game that his quad was sore and that he wasn't sure if he would play Sunday. The third baseman reached his 20-day rehab limit on Sunday. He was hoping to rejoin the Yankees on Monday in Texas, but wasn't sure if he would play third or DH on his return.
The Yankees were scheduled to play the Red Sox in Boston on Sunday night.
