Yankees DH Rodriguez: 'Anyone can do it for 10 games'
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) The surprisingly sizzling start of Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez has many excited, but he's not one of them.
"Anyone can do it for 10 games," he told ESPN. "Let's see you do it for six months. Let's just see what happens."
Rodriguez, who has three home runs among his five hits in the last two games combined, boasts a sensational slash line on the year of .344/.432/.781.

Yankees' Alex Rodriguez slugs home run in Wednesday's loss
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez went 2 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 7-5 loss to the Orioles Wednesday.
It's just the second multihit game of the season for Rodriguez, who smacked his home run off Baltimore starter Bud Norris in the fourth inning.
"That one felt amazing off the bat," Rodriguez said after the game, per MLB.com. "We've shown flashes of good things in all four facets of our game. The key for us is to collectively get them all working in the same direction, get them in sync. Once we do that we can get on a roll."
He's 8 for 28 with two home runs and seven RBI in nine games while seeing time at first base, third base and designated hitter. He's four home runs from tying Willie Mays on the all-time list.
Yankees slot Alex Rodriguez at DH Wednesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) The Yankees will lineup Alex Rodriguez at designated hitter Wednesday against the Orioles after getting the day of Tuesday, reports NJ.com.
Rodriguez, who is batting sixth in the game, is hitting .313 with a home run and six RBI when slotted as the designated hitter this season. The Yankees are currently the underdogs (+115) against Baltimore.
|2014 summary: Alex Rodriguez sat out the entire 2014 season while serving a 162-game suspension for his role in the Biogenesis scandal.|
Playing time status: In the last season he played, Rodriguez appeared in only 44 games, and the last time he played in more than 140 games was 2007. Health permitting, Rodriguez could take on a full-time role in 2015, but it is not yet clear what the Yankees' plans are for him.
2015 outlook: The most likely scenario for Rodriguez is to serve as the Yankees' primary designated hitter, but even if he can remain healthy, Fantasy owners may have to deal with some significant decline. Having undergone a pair of hip operations, the 39-year-old Rodriguez is probably not a source of steals anymore, and his contact skills showed some serious erosion in his two most recent seasons. Rodriguez was viable in standard mixed leagues in 2012, and just maybe he's worth drafting for that format again. If you're going to take that gamble, take it in the very late rounds.
