ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ A-Rod is back in the New York
Yankees lineup after missing six weeks due to a hand injury.
Alex Rodriguez was listed as the DH and batting fourth in the
manager Joe Girardi’s lineup for Monday’s game against Tampa Bay.
Rodriguez has been out since breaking his left hand July 24. He
went 0 for 7 in two rehabilitation appearances for Class A Tampa.
While he is having a down year with only 15 home runs, New York is
19-18 without its cleanup hitter in the lineup.
