|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) After getting Thursday off to rest, Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez returned to the lineup for Friday's game against the Mets, the team announced.
Rodriguez will hit third and is going against Jacob deGrom, who he has never faced in his career.
The Yankees are the favorites (-135) over the Mets on Friday.
Yankees' Alex Rodriguez looking 'comfortable' at plate
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez has had an impressive start to open the season and opposing teams are taking notice.
"He looks completely comfortable and relaxed in the box. He's not swinging at many bad pitches," a scout said, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Rodriguez has hit four home runs with 11 RBI in 49 at-bats to start the season. He was given the day off Thursday, but is expected to return to the lineup Friday against the Mets.
Yankees' Alex Rodriguez gets the day off in Detroit
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi gave the day off to Alex Rodriguez Thursday against Detroit, according to the USA Today. The embattled slugger is hitting .265 (13 for 49) with tree doubles, four homers and 11 RBI in 15 games. He has just two hits over his last 17 at-bats.
Rodriguez is two home runs away from tying Giants legend Willie Mays on the all-time home run list. The Yankees will begin a six-game homestand on Friday, with three games against the Mets and three against the Rays. Girardi said he plans to start Rodriguez during all six games on the homestand, per MLB.com.
Yankees' Carlos Beltran, Didi Gregorious not in lineup Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran and shortstop Didi Gregorius are not in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with lefty starter Kyle Lobstein and the Tigers.
Beltran missed two games due to illness before returning to the lineup Monday. He had been batting third but was slotted fifth in his return Monday. Designated hitter Alex Rodriguez will make his fourth straight start in the No. 3 spot in the lineup Tuesday.
Gregorius has started 11 of the team's 13 games this year at shortstop. Backup infielder Gregorio Petit will play shortstop and bat ninth.
The Yankees are underdogs (+105) in Detroit Tuesday.
Mark Teixeira connects for fourth HR, ties A-Rod for Yankees' lead
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) First baseman Mark Teixeira provided the only offense for the Yankees in their loss on Monday, a solo home run in the second inning.|
Teixeira now has four homers on the season which ties him with Alex Rodriguez for the team lead.
|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.
