New York Yankees News Roundup: A-Rod, Colon, Gardner and Gooden

"Nice to know you, Derek."

Alex Rodriguez left Saturday's game with a stiff back and oblique, and doesn't know whether he'll play in Sunday night's contest against the Rangers.

He is not trying to lift the ball at all, it has more to do with what he is not doing with the lower half... He isn't using the lower half. And he is looking at pitches and expanding the zone more than usual. He has been feeling for his swing.

Hopefully they figure it out.

  • Dwight Gooden was sentenced to five years probation after a DUI arrest last March. He was allegedly high on cocaine and had his five-year old son in the car (not wearing a seat belt).
  • Attendees of Saturday's miserable day-game will get a free ticket offer that can be used for any available 2011 game (other than Old Timers' Day and Mets and Red Sox affairs).
  • Jesus Montero and Slade Heathcott made BA's Prospect Hot Sheet for the week. Ramon Flores, a 19-year-old at Low-A Charleston, made the Helium Watch and is a name to keep an eye on. He has a .168 IsoD in nine game so far.
  • This is what a curveball looks like to a hitter.

* Not intended to be a factual statement.
