Alex Rodriguez 3B/DH NYY 3 weeks ago

Rodriguez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run at Fenway Park on Saturday.

A-Rod may have missed out on an All-Star appearance at DH, but he's swinging the bat like an All-Star of late, with homers in back-to-back games. Rodriguez's 18 long balls have him on pace for his best output since 2008, and a 100 run/100 RBI season is a real possibility for the resurgent 39-year-old, as he's sitting on 47 and 50, respectively, through 81 appearances.

Rodriguez went 2-for-3 with a homer, a walk, five RBI and two runs scored Saturday against Detroit.

One day after going long for his 3,000th hit, A-Rod remained in fine form. Over the last four games, he's racked up seven hits in 13 at-bats with eight RBI and four walks against no strikeouts. He may be 39 years old, but A-Rod has pushed his OPS back over .900 -- something he hasn't done for a full season since 2009.

Rodriguez is not in the lineup Monday against Miami, Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York reports.

As expected, Rodriguez will take a seat Monday as the Yankees play in a National League park. The veteran will likely be relegated to pinch hit duty throughout the series, though there is an outside chance he could see time at first or third base.

With no DH available at Marlins Park, Rodriguez will likely be limited to pinch-hitting duties in his hometown. He's made four appearances (two starts) at third base and two more (one start) at first base, but the Yankees clearly prefer to keep him out of the field.
