Rodriguez is out of the lineup Wednesday, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

With the Yankees playing in an NL ballpark against the Nationals, Rodriguez will continue to be held out as he really only fits for them as a designated hitter. He should be back in the lineup Friday when the Yankees begin their weekend series against the Rangers.

Rodriguez is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Manager Joe Girardi recently expressed his hesitancy to put Rodriguez back into the field, so A-Rod will likely receive a couple of days off this week as the Yankees lose the DH as they travel to Washington for a two-game series against the Nationals.

Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a home run in Thursday's loss to Tampa Bay.

Heading into the year there were a lot of questions and concerns about how A-Rod would perform after missing a full 2014 season. He's put a close to those concerns and has been one of the most productive hitters on the team. He now has nine home runs and 21 RBI to go along with a .250 average. His days of hitting .300 may be over, be he can still clearly provide plenty of offensive production in a lineup that definitely needs it.

Rodriguez went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

His hamstring issue appears to be a thing of the past, and the fact that he does not have to play the field should allow him to remain a staple of the Yankees' lineup going forward.

Rodriguez (hamstring) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game in Tampa Bay, Newsday's Erik Boland reports.

Rodriguez felt soreness in his left hamstring during the ninth inning of Monday's 11-5 win over the Rays, MLB.com reports.

Rodriguez briefly grabbed for his hamstring after taking second base on defensive indifference, but he stayed in the game and didn't appear to be in much pain. He was held out of Saturday's lineup against the Orioles due to some tightness in his leg, and while this only seems like a minor issue, it's possible Rodriguez could get another day off at some point this week.

Rodriguez (leg) will return to the lineup Sunday against the Orioles. He'll serve as the designated hitter and bat third in the order.

Manager Joe Girardi said Rodriguez's legs were feeling heavy after he tripled in Friday's game, prompting the 39-year-old's day off Saturday. The injury shouldn't be a hindrance to Rodriguez in future contests, making him an easy activation in what has been a resurgent campaign. Though he's batting just .247, he's been able to offset that by getting on base at a .348 clip while supplying seven homers and 19 RBI.

Rodriguez felt a little "tight" Saturday, which is why he was held out of the lineup, Newsday's Erik Boland reports.

Manager Joe Girardi said he expects Rodriguez to be back in the lineup Sunday. While it sounds like a very minor issue and can probably be simply attributed to Rodriguez's age, he should still be considered day-to-day until he gets back in the lineup.
