Alex Rodriguez had an MRI yesterday. According to Mark Feinsand in the News:
A-Rod will likely miss at least the next few days after an MRI revealed a low-grade strain of his left calf, an injury that sidelined Jorge Posada for four games in early May.
“This is not as significant as Posada’s, as it was conveyed to me,” GM Brian Cashman said. “That probably means less time, though that doesn’t mean it will be less time. Could it be two days, three days, longer? We’ll have to see. It’s not a serious situation, though it’s obviously serious in that we won’t have him for a period of time.”
…A-Rod has never dealt with a calf injury before, so he had no way to judge how much progress he had made since leaving Monday’s game, but he seemed encouraged by the information given to him by team physician Dr. Chris Ahmad.
“I’m not concerned. I’m going to be fine,” Rodriguez said. “Right now, we have good news. We don’t want to prolong it or make it a more serious situation.”
