Rodriguez is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday marks Rodriguez's fourth consecutive day out of the lineup despite being listed as healthy. His well-documented struggles at the dish have seeped into the second half of the season and he was even left out of the lineup when the Yankees faced a lefty on Monday. He figures to return to the lineup at some point in the near future, but it's difficult to imagine Rodriguez regaining an everyday role barring a significant turnaround at the plate.

Rodriguez is out of the lineup Saturday against the Giants, Newsday's Steven Marcus reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mark Teixeira's return to the lineup allows manager Joe Girardi to give Carlos Beltran a day at DH and give Rodriguez the day off entirely. Rodriguez is just 2-for-16 since returning from the All-Star break, and although one of those hits was a home run, he is still struggling to make contact and get on base.

In an attempt to find more playing time in the second half, Rodriguez plans to take grounders at first base during the All-Star break, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports.

Chase Headley has been getting the majority of starts at third base while Carlos Beltran has been the everyday designated hitter. Rodriguez is hitting .244/.348/.423 in 156 at-bats in 2016.

With Carlos Beltran expected to DH through the weekend, Rodriguez will likely be held out of the lineup Saturday and Sunday, the Westchester Journal News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beltran is dealing with some lingering soreness in his hamstring and manager Joe Girardi is hesitant to put the 39-year-old back in the field, leaving A-Rod without a spot in the lineup. Rodriguez was seeing his playing time against right-handers scale back anyway, as his season-long struggles at the plate have persisted with a .220/.256/.382 slash line.
